In the event that you have no electricity supply, or a within a larger power cut

The first thing you need to do is to check your fuse box, if any of the fuses have tripped:

  • Turn off your appliances
  • Reset the switch
  • Turn off all trip switches then turn back on one by one doing the lights first as it's the lowest ampage

If your fuse hasn't tripped and your neighbours don't have power either, it will be an issue with the wider network. In this situation you can call '105' which will take you straight through to your electricity network operator.

If you're on the Priority Services Register, please call 0141 249 3999

Remember: Cordless phones won't work in a power cut, so you'll need to use a landline or mobile phone to make the call.
