In the event of utility failure, your service provider is responsible for re-establishing the network.
If you are suffering a power cut or any utility outage you should contact your service provider or local electricity distribution company.
The service providers have a wide range of alerts that inform them of any disruption in the network.
Find out the contact details for your local electricity distribution company here.
