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.

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)
