What to do in case of a power cut Power outages do not happen very often but please be prepared. The mother switchboard is located in the large cupboard under the stairs in the kitchen. It’s to the left low down towards the ground. All breakers are labelled. Important Following a power outage, please ensure that all stove and oven switches are turned off immediately and all saucepans etc. are removed from the stovetop and oven. This will ensure that when external power is restored there is no risk of fire from burning pots and pans.
