The Causes of Electricity Emergencies and What to Do When They Occur

There are a number of electrical emergencies that can occur due to various reasons. Each of them needs to be dealt with differently.


Emergency Electrician

If there are electrical emergency situations which are minor, the registered electrician can be called and asked to visit as well as check out the fault. However, in cases of emergency situations where lives could be endangered, it is essential to call the emergency number.

Incase trees have fallen and taken down power lines due to storms or other reasons, the power lines will remain live and can cause electrocution or serious injury to people who even touch the tree branch. This needs to be dealt with exclusively by the electricity company.

In case of power outages the homeowner needs to be prepared by having a torch ready and all the cooling and heating appliances need to be switched off. The television, electronic devices and electrical equipment need to be turned off and unplugged and the electricity distributor needs to be contacted so that they are aware of the situation and can deal with it. In case of outages, it is necessary to have a mobile phone handy to contact an electrician, which will not need electricity in order to operate.
