Report malfunctioning streetlights - it could save a life

17 July 2017

Reporting broken, damaged or vandalised streetlights will improve public safety and could potentially save lives according to Ergon Energy.

Customer Delivery Manager Charlie Casa said streetlights underpin community safety and ensuring they are working and working properly, is important.  

“And more so now that winter is here, daylight hours are shorter and streetlights are coming on earlier. Residents are urged to report any streetlight malfunction or abnormal operation,” he said. “This includes lights that are not operating or any that are flickering.”

A regular inspection and maintenance program, supported by information from the public, helps to keep street lights in good working order.
