Rugby Liberal Democrats say get ready for Winter

Rugby Lib Dem diamondAs the nights begin to get darker and temperatures drop, Rugby Liberal Democrats say there are some simple steps residents can take to be prepared in case they have a power cut or gas emergency.

Know your free emergency numbers - in a power cut dial 105 or 0800 056 8090, for a gas emergency, dial 0800 111 999, for water problems contact Severn Trent on 0800 783 4444.

Prepare your home - keep a torch handy and get your appliances serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning:


Register as a vulnerable customer - vulnerable households can get extra support by signing up to the Priority Services Register. Telephone 0800 096 3080 for further information and to register contact Western Power Distribution:


Keep your eyes open - keep an eye on the weather forecast and, if you have a power cut or a gas emergency, check on your neighbours.

Become a Snow Warden - Warwickshire County Council runs a voluntary snow warden scheme that enables residents to deal with frost and snow in public areas that the council are unable to grit.
