The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] is asking people to please refrain from calling 911 to seek information about the power outage and “allow the 911 number to remain free for emergency calls only.”

A police spokesperson said, “Officers are out on patrol and positioned to assist at major intersections where traffic controls are out to prevent any disruption of traffic flow.

“We have received a number of non emergency calls to 911, from members of the public seeking information about the outage. We ask that you tune in to 100.1 FM or visit www.belco.bm for official updates and allow the 911 number to remain free for emergency calls only.”

Stephen Corbishley, Commissioner of Police said: “We have been in regular contact with the Honourable Minister of National Security and kept her abreast of events here at the BPS. We have assured her that we have not been significantly impacted by today’s island wide power outage.I would like to similarly assure the community that we are mobilised to address any eventuality which arise as a result of this situation.”
