What constitutes an electrical emergency?

An electrical emergency is any electrical event that can put you in danger. Whether that emergency is a downed electrical wire, an electrical fire, a sparking appliance or anything else, you need to know where to turn to get it fixed and how to proceed in the safest manner possible.

Common electrical problems and how to deal with them:

  • lightning1Power Outages – In the event of a power outage, your first step should be to determine if your entire neighborhood is out of power or if it is just your home. If the power is out everywhere, inform your electric company. If your home is the only one with a power outage, check your breaker box and reset any breakers that have been tripped. If the circuit trips again immediately after it’s been reset, contact a licensed electrical contractor. While you are waiting for your electrician to arrive, unplug electrical devices to ensure that they stay safe when the power comes back on.
  • Sparking or Smoking Outlets – If your outlets are smoking or sparking, it could quickly lead to an electrical fire, so if you notice them in your home, call the fire department immediately! It’s better to be safe than sorry, and if your outlets are already smoking or sparking, it will escalate much faster than you think. Get your family and pets out of the house, and make sure that no one goes near the outlet in question. After everyone has been evacuated, you should then locate the main circuit box of your home and check for any signs of smoke or sparks. If sparks or smoke are present, leave immediately and wait for the fire department. If all seems well with your circuit box, turn off the electricity and evacuate.
  • Fallen Power Lines – Unlike regular power cords, power lines aren’t insulated, and they are exceedingly dangerous because they carry high voltage electricity. If you notice a fallen power line, the very first thing that you should do is call 911. Stay away from the power line, and make sure that no other people approach it. Approaching the downed power line can be fatal, so you should steer clear or the power line itself, as well as anything or anyone that it has come in contact with.
