WESTERN POWER OUTAGES
The Shire of Wyalkatchem has been advised there will be wide-spread planned power outages in October. The Shire of Wyalkatchem office will be subject to Western Power outage 4 October 2017 and 12 October 2017 but plans to have generator in place to minimise the effect of this interruption.
Residents should be aware that the NAB bank branch will be closed Thursday 5 October due to power interruption and other businesses may also be affected. Please consider how this may affect you and what options you may have.
Residents are advised to plan ahead. If you have received an advice from Western Power that your property may have limited power in October think about how to prepare:
- Investigate use of a generator;
- Have access to a fixed line phone;
- Unplug un-necessary and sensitive appliances;
- Adjust your fridge and freezer to the coldest setting and only open when necessary;
- Talk to your neighbours and friends and make sure you’re aware of the needs of others.
