3.2 Loss of Other Main Services. The loss of electricity can have a “knock on effect” on all other mains services. The weather will also affect the severity of the emergency, as will the availability of communications within, and outside, the community. The situation will be assessed by the Parish Council / Emergency Management Team at the time, and a suitable response made, using the resources detailed in the self help plan.


If telephones are not affected, and road traffic is moving freely, contact should be made with the service supplier/s, to;


(a) Report the loss of service


(b) Obtain an estimate of time when supplies will recommence.


If reconnection is likely to be delayed the supplier/s should be asked to institute emergency measures, to assist the community deal with the situation until normal service is resumed. North Devon District Council should be informed of the situation.
