Community Notice Board Western Power Putting Safety First in Bushfire Season Western Power takes bushfire prevention seriously. A number of steps are taken to ensure the power network continues to run safely. Most faults on the electricity network are temporary, however, about 30% of faults are more serious and result in an interrupted supply until Western Power can find the cause. Western Powers’ network is designed with equipment to automatically detect and isolate these faults.
On a Fire Weather Day, Western Power will not turn power back on after an outage without carefully considering any risks. If you experience an outage lasting 12 continuous hours or more, you may be eligible for an $80 payment under the State Governments Extended Outage Payment Scheme. Visit westernpower.com.au and click on ‘Make A Claim’ to check your eligibility and to submit your claim. Are You Bushfire Ready? Power may also be turned off in areas around bushfires for the safety of emergency services crews working in the area.
Tips to stay safe and be prepared: • If you care for someone who is sick or elderly, run a business or you rely on electrical pumps for water, we recommend you maintain your own emergency electricity and water supply. • If you have a generator, keep it fuelled and ready to operate. • If you have automatic garage doors or gates, learn how to operate them manually before an outage occurs. • Keep your mobile phone and other important devices charged. Remember, you can recharge many devices in your car. • Keep a torch and radio within reach and have spare batteries on hand. • If you don’t have a surge protector, during an outage unplug sensitive appliances such as computers, TVs and sound systems to protect them when power is restored. • Stay informed by checking the Fire Danger Rating and Total Fire Bans at dfes.wa.gov.au • If you see a fallen powerline, stay at least 8m away and call our 24/7 emergency line on 13 13 51. • For up to date information about outages visit the power outages map at: westernpower.com.au
