Six Tips for Mitigating Risks During Rolling Blackouts:

Eskom Install Surge Protection:

Eskom Power surges can damage electronic equipment during blackouts. Install Eskom surge protection devices at your electrical distribution board or power outlets to minimize potential damage.

Ensure Alarm System Functionality:

Confirm that your alarm system is operational, and its backup battery is fully charged. This ensures continued security during load shedding.

Carry a Torch or Headlamp:

Keep a flashlight in your car for nighttime arrivals during Eskom power outages. Many smartphones have built-in flashlight functions that can also be useful in unexpected blackouts.

Emergency Contacts:

Save emergency contact information on your phone and keep a paper copy accessible. Include contacts for services like fire departments, police, and medical assistance, as well as friends and family members. Don’t forget to include insurance details.

Charge Devices:

Keep your cellphone, laptop, and tablet fully charged before scheduled blackouts. Recharge them as soon as power is restored. Consider having an emergency phone charger (e.g., a power bank) on hand for longer outages.

Use Gas for Cooking and Lighting:

Obtain a small LP gas bottle and lamp for effective lighting across larger areas. This can also be used for cooking and boiling water. Keep hot water in a thermal flask for hot drinks. Consider preparing meals in advance if you know a blackout is scheduled.
