Details of the scheme
If you or someone in your home is dependent on a water supply or electrical equipment for daily care then you can sign up to a Care Register.
The facility is offered by both Northern Ireland Electricity (NIE) and Northern Ireland Water (NI Water).
If you have a cut in supply, having someone on the register means that contact details are prioritised by the relevant service supplier.
They will also contact you ahead of any planned outages advising of the planned length of time that you may be affected in supply in order to allow you enough time to make alternative arrangements.
This service is of particular benefit for individuals who rely on medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, home dialysis machines and vital signs monitoring equipment.
For further information on how to register, and details of which services are offered by which company, contact the service provider directly.
