PRIORITY HELP AVAIABLE
With winter on the way, there is always the possibility of localised power cuts caused by severe storms. UK Power Networks has launched a scheme to enable vulnerable people to register for priority help in the event of such a power cut. Those eligible include people who are dependent on medical equipment, people with a disability, the elderly, people with young babies and nursing and residential homes.
By registering for UK Power Networks’ free Priority Service, customers will get:-
A priority phone number that you can call 24 hours a day
A welcome pack with useful advice about preparing for a power cut
Regular text messages or phone updates during a power cut
Extra support from the British Red Cross
You can register online by going to UK Power Networks website: www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk If you know people who could benefit form this service, please spread the word.
