Types of Electrical Emergencies
While there are many types of electrical emergencies if you don’t know what you are doing the most important thing to know is that working with electric can be deadly. DO NOT TOUCH downed wires, electrical outlets or wires if you do not know what you are doing. Your safety is the utmost priority.
Below are some of the more common issues we have seen and recommendations for how to handle them.
If you have an electrical fire get everyone out of the building and immediately call 911. If you can get to the electrical panel without putting yourself in danger, cut the electricity to the building. Only if the fire seems of a manageable size, use a fire extinguisher on the fire. DO NOT ever use water on an electrical fire. Once the fire is out call us to assess and repair the damage. If the damage is extensive, we can help you to file a claim with your insurance company for rewiring the damaged electrical system.
Downed Electrical Wire to Your Home or Commercial Building
High wind, tornadoes, hurricanes and electrical storms can all bring electrical power lines down. While Power Companies are responsible for electric wires on streets and cross country, the wires that connect directly to your home or commercial building are repaired by us, your local electrician. If you have a downed electrical wire to your commercial building or home, call your local emergency electrician immediately. DO NOT touch the downed wire.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information 30,000 non-fatal electrical shock incidents occur in the US each year with approximately 20% of those occurring to children, the highest incidence in toddlers and adolescents.
Shocks can occur in your home due to loose or damaged wiring, loose screws, damaged casings, outdated outlets and improper wiring. If a shock occurs to you, an associate, or a family member, DO NOT TOUCH the person who was shocked until power has been disconnected or turned off. Call 911 if needed. Get medical treatment if needed. Then call us to investigate the cause of the electrical shock and make repairs.
