Power Dependency

If you or someone you care for relies on power - for critical care medical equipment in the home or critical pharmacy-dispensed medication - developing an emergency management plan for lengthy, planned and unplanned power outages with your GP, pharmacy, carers, and family is essential.

There are four easy steps to creating an effective plan to protect your health during an extended power outage:

  1. Being prepared
  2. Having a plan in place
  3. Registering for support
  4. Receiving alerts.

To get started, read the Do you depend on power (PDF 547KB) brochure for detailed information and referrals.
