Last updated: 7 December 2016

Preparing for periods without electricity, water or gas

You can take steps to prepare yourself for a loss of electricity, water or gas.

For example, at home you could keep:

  • a battery powered or wind-up torch and radio
  • mobile phones, laptops or tablets charged
  • a non-mains powered landline telephone

You could also make a list of any telephone numbers you might need. And keep them somewhere handy.
