Storm Ali left 180,000+ homes without electricity and power. ReachActive mobilised their HV teams to affected areas of Trim and Mullingar in support of ESB. Our patrollers have been out since yesterday, working hard, safely identifying damaged networks and reporting back to ESB.
Storm precautionary advice:
ESB have issued a statement reminding everyone that if you come across fallen wires or damaged electricity networks, never, ever touch or approach these as they are LIVE and extremely dangerous. Please report any damage to electricity infrastructure by calling 1850 372 999.
Thanks to all of the ERA teams working through these challenging conditions.
