Wales - Dyfed-Powys Police

WITH petrol and diesel prices soaring and real concern about the amount of people who could fall into fuel poverty, police are warning Powys residents to protect their heating oil supplies.

Dyfed Powys Police has issued advice on how they can do this, including checking oil levels frequently, speak suppliers about more frequent but smaller deliveries and building fencing around your tanks.

“We are reminding residents to protect their heating oil supplies to prevent any theft from storage tanks,” said Dyfed Powys Police.

“Residents can take a few simple steps to prevent being a victim of theft. Taking these measures will help make life more difficult for would-be-thieves.”

• Be aware of your oil levels and check frequently, consider installing a tank alarm, which alert owners of sudden changes in fuel levels

• Where possible keep your levels low and the same when refilling

• Speak to your supplier with regards to a more frequent but smaller delivery.
