A Safety Message from Ausgrid
The recent severe weather conditions have resulted in fallen trees and powerlines across the State and power outages in some areas.
As a result, Ausgrid has been working to ensure the network is safe and to restore power as quickly as possible.
It is always important to remember to stay safe:
- Watch out for electrical hazards hidden in storm debris; trees and flood waters can hide fallen powerlines
- Fallen powerlines are very dangerous; do not touch fallen powerlines and always assume they are live
- If you see a fallen powerline, stay at least 8 metres (as long as a bus) away from it and anything it may be touching. Tell an adult and call triple zero (000)
