Stay safe this cyclone and storm season

We want to make sure you are safe this cyclone and storm season, so we have a few simple tips to help you prepare.

It's important to be prepared for a cyclone or storm. Hire a professional tree contractor to trim trees at least three metres from powerlines, spend some time cleaning up around the outside of your property and make sure boats, caravans, and outdoor chairs and tables are secured or stored away.

Download our safety brochures for more tips and things to consider before, during and after a cyclone or storm.

Extreme weather events can also bring down overhead powerlines.

A fallen powerline can send electricity into the ground for up to 10 metres all around it. If you see a fallen powerline, don’t touch anything near it and keep clear of the 10 metre danger zone. 

Report fallen powerlines to Horizon Power immediately on 13 23 51.
