Our power is out (supply issue/fault). I have lots of dairy, chicken etc in fridge/freezer. It might be ok, but the power might not be on for another 3-4+ hours. What happens if food is spoiled? Will the electricity company company reimburse?

I know in WA if it's a long power loss that's not your fault then you can apply for reimbursement. There is information and a form to use on our providers website.
Maybe check out your providers site - it may have info for you.
Best of luck!

We had a power outage that lasted 2 days when my older kids were babies. We got reimbursement of food in our fridge and freezer

Also, i kind of think if its 3 or 4 hours you can just buy some ice and it would be fine....if they reminburst everyone who lost power for a couple of hours we'd be paying a fortune in extra overheads.

Just try and keep the fridge/freezer closed. It will last 3-4 hours for sure without spoiling.
