EFL’s Power Restoration priority’s following a cyclone event is as follows:1. Major Hospitals & Health Centres
2. Water Pumping Stations, Water & Sewerage Treatment Plants (WAF)
3. Central Business Districts, Commercial & Industrial Areas
4. Residential Areas

Every effort has been made by Action Centre Team Leaders to ensure that items 1 and 2 above are clearly identified and programmed for priority action.

The EFL wishes to remind the public to treat all broken power lines as live and to exercise appropriate precaution by staying away and keeping others away from all broken power lines.

Do not touch any EFL Line on the ground.

Isolation of Service Lines
In the process of power restoration, if the EFL teams feel that the service line or the service/intermediary pole is defective, the service line will be isolated and the customers will need to engage the services of a registered electrical contractor to carry out the repairs.

The EFL sincerely apologizes to all our valued customers who are yet to get power supply restored to their installations/homes. Every metre of the power line has to be physically inspected, safely repaired where required, before it can be energised. Whilst this process is time consuming, it is none-the less critical to ensure the safety and security of power supply.
