What is an emergency?
An emergency relating to our utility networks is anything that threatens life, is dangerous or a potential health hazard, or when damage has been caused to part of utility infrastructure such as powerlines, poles, pipes, meters and pillars, to name a few.
If there is a life-threatening situation, you should call the emergency number 000 (112 on most mobiles) for immediate assistance from the police, fire brigade or ambulance before calling one of our emergency contact numbers to report the emergency.
