Western Cape gears up for higher stages of blackouts

Disaster Risk Management structures in the Western Cape are putting contingency plans in place amid concerns about higher stages of rolling blackouts.

The Head of Disaster Management, Colin Deiner, says various steps will be taken immediately to ensure that essential services including water and sanitation as well as medical care can function.

He was speaking in a virtual media briefing on the matter.

“The important thing is we are putting the structures in place, where we will provide the communication and I think that’s where in a total blackout; if you’re not able to communicate, if you don’t have a radio or you can’t get any messages on your phone there will be identified places where information will be made available and I think you have to play what’s in front of you. You have to see what the challenges are and then you have to deal with them and you have to keep people on board as you are doing that,” says Deiner.
