Cold Weather Priority
If you are aged 75 or older, or you suffer from a medical condition that makes you vulnerable to the cold, you can sign up to our Cold Weather Priority Scheme. By signing up to this free programme Moorland Fuels will prioritise your heating order in times of high demand to ensure that you can continue to heat your home.
According to the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), there are around 400,000 avoidable deaths in the UK each year where cold is a significant contributing factor. Over 80% of these deaths occur in people aged 75 and older.
Whilst supply shortages and extreme weather conditions are thankfully rare in Devon, delivery times can extend during winter months due to customer demand. The Cold Weather Priority Scheme enables us to identify those who are the most vulnerable to the cold and ensure they receive their deliveries in a timely manner during times of peak demand.
The Cold Weather Priority scheme was launched by trade association, The UK & Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA).
To sign up, simply call a member of our team on 01837 55700 and ask to join the Cold Weather Priority Scheme.
