The Scottish Power emergency service

scottish power emergency numberScottish Power understands that is important not to panic in an emergency. Emergencies can be classified in several different forms. As a Scottish Power customer, your emergency could be electrical or gas related. If you have a power cut, a loss in electricity supply, can smell gas or can visually see a gas leak, Scottish Power advises you to contact them immediately. Scottish Power advises that in a power cut you should check if your neighbour still has an electricity supply and if they don’t, you should then proceed to contact them. If you smell gas or have a gas leak, you should open all doors and windows, avoid using electrical equipment, turn off the gas at the meter and then call your supplier. You can obtain help for these issues by calling the Scottish Power emergency number.
