T&TEC to activate emergency hotlines during local government elections

T&TEC will activate additional emergency hotlines to allow for an immediate response to electricity-related emergencies that may occur on election day on Monday.

Members of the public and election official are encouraged to contact T&TEC at 794-7264 or 794-4823 to report any such emergencies that impact election activities.

The Commission says it has no scheduled outages on the day, adding that it has conducted pre-election assessments to ensure that polling stations have an uninterrupted electricity supply.

It notes, however, that in any unforeseen circumstance, channelling calls through the hotline will ensure a quick response.

The hotline will be operational from 4.30 pm on Sunday to midnight on polling day.

T&TEC’s 24/7 trouble report lines - 800-BULB (2852) and 800-TTEC (8832) will remain operational during the period.
