Mayor of Falmouth Councillor Garth Wilkinson says he has sent a report to the Minister of Health about the power outage at the Falmouth Hospital last night.

The mayor says he is still unaware of the cause of the outage but he is concerned that the standby unit did not work as expected.

Wilkinson says while things can malfunction, such emergency centres must have electricity.

A power outage in Falmouth and its environs about eight o’clock last night left the hospital without power for about one hour and 45 minutes.
