For residents living in major metropolitan areas, load shedding schedules are available to help prepare for power outages. Here are six tips to mitigate risks during load shedding:

  1. Surge Protection: Install surge protection devices to safeguard electronic equipment from damage during power surges.
  2. Alarm System: Ensure your alarm system is functioning, and the backup battery is operational during load shedding.
  3. Torch or Headlamp: Keep a torch in your car for nighttime arrivals during power outages. Most smartphones have built-in torch functions.
  4. Emergency Contacts: Save emergency contact information on your phone and keep a paper copy with contacts for emergency services, friends, family, and insurance.
  5. Device Charging: Charge your cellphone, laptop, and tablet devices before scheduled blackouts and have backup chargers like power banks.
  6. Gas for Cooking and Lighting: Consider having a small LP gas bottle and lamp for lighting and cooking during power outages. Prepare hot water in a thermal flask for hot drinks and pre-cook meals if possible.
