Tips in case of power outages

2008-01-16 00:00

• Switch off (or even better, disconnect) any electrical appliances that you were using. When the power comes back on, it may do so with a momentary surge, which can damage electronically controlled appliances such as computers, televisions sets, VCRs and DVD players.

• Ensure that your vehicle always has fuel in the tank since during power outages, petrol stations cannot pump fuel. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
