Safety and emergencies
Here you'll find out what you should do in an emergency involving electricity. You'll also find safety advice for hazards relating to any of our assets, such as overhead power lines.
If you’re experiencing a power cut, you should call 105. It’s free of charge and will put you through to your local network operator who can give you help and advice.
Dial before you dig
You need to know that it's safe to dig before you start. You can do this by:
- finding out where underground electricity cables and gas pipelines are buried
- reporting if you are planning any works in Britain.

If you’re experiencing a power cut, you should call 105. Do not call your electricity supplier. Electricity suppliers sell consumers energy and are not responsible for power lines. Calling 105 is a free service.
