Preparing for power cuts

Although power cuts are not something you should expect, there may be times when interruptions are unavoidable. It’s always best to be prepared, especially if you live with elderly people or young children.

In your home or cottage, you should store the followung provisions in a place that is easy to find:

  • torch and batteries
  • spare fuses
  • candles and matches
  • battery-operated radio/car radio
  • firewood if you have a fireplace
  • drinking water
  • mobile phone power supply

If you have equipment that requires an uninterrupted power supply at all times, such as a computer or another sensitive device, you should equip the device with a reserve power system, such as UPS.

If uninterrupted electricity supply is critical, you should consider purchasing your own reserve power system. For example, aggregation units or tractor generators are suitable for farm use.
