The German power grid is considered very stable. Power outages are comparatively rare and usually affect only limited areas. Experts believe that long-lasting, widespread power outages (a "blackout") are unlikely this winter as well. Nevertheless, various events also show that critical infrastructures are vulnerable. A local heavy rainfall or a severe storm can trigger power outages.
As a rule, power outages are repaired within a few hours. In emergency situations, however, it can also take days until the power is available again. Then private provision is important. Once an emergency has occurred, it is usually too late for precautionary measures. Think thereby also of humans in your proximity, which need your assistance!
In an info. flyer we arranged important information for you to the precaution. It also contains an overview map with contact points where you can make emergency calls or get information during a power outage, for example. The flyer will be distributed to all Erlanger households in the coming weeks.
Overview map of contact points in the districts:
Many information media such as the Internet or television are disrupted during an area-wide power outage. Information can then be obtained, among other things, in the city districts at various contact points.
