Electrical emergencies

If all the electrics go off in the house check the main fuse box to see if any of the switches are in the OFF position. If so turn ON. To check if all the electrics are off in the local area contact YEDL on 0800 375675.

Fire Alarm - False Alarms

If the fire alarm sounds and you are CERTAIN there is NO FIRE please check:

  1. Does your property have a Fire Alarm Panel (usually in the entrance hall)? If so:
  2. Check if a Zone light is on to indicate where the fault occurred. Take a note.
  3. Silence & Reset the alarm. This varies with the type of panel:
    • If panel has an ALT button: press ALT, then 514 then 1 to silence, then 2 to reset
    • If panel has 5 large grey buttons enter access code 3112 then follow instructions
    • Other panels: follow instructions on front of the panel

Water Emergencies

In the event of a major water leak or burst pipe turn off the Mains Water tap. This is usually located under the sink or in the basement (if applicable), then turn on a cold water tap to drain the pipes.

Refuse Collection

To check which day your bins are collected go to:

You can also check which items are allowed in your green bin.


Half of burglaries take place through insecure properties. Ensure all windows are shut and doors are locked at all times - particularly ground floor windows and cellar doors.

When you leave the house keep all of your valuables hidden. It just takes a few seconds but can keep them secure if you are burgled. Also, register your electrical items for free on By doing this the police can return to you any stolen items if they are recovered.

When you leave your house at night give the impression someone is still in and leave a small light on. Also, try to avoid leaving the house in one big group, as this is an obvious way to advertise your empty home to opportunist burglars.
