In today’s blog post, we will look into some common electrical emergencies and the troubleshooting process:

How To Troubleshoot Common Electrical Emergencies

  • Electrical Shock

If someone has received an electrical shock, the first thing to do is to call for medical assistance as quickly as possible. Do not touch the person unless it is safe to do so. If possible, turn off the main switch or unplug the electrical device using a non-conductive object, such as a wooden stick or plastic tool.

  • Power Outage

In some cases, a power outage occurs as a result of a tripped circuit break. So, you’ll want to verify if the circuit breaker has tripped before you consider other actions. If neighbors also have a power outage, it might be a widespread issue. Contact the utility company to report the outage.

  • Electrical Fires

If there is an electrical fire, the first priority is to ensure everyone's safety. Use a fire extinguisher suitable for electrical fires, or cut power to the affected area if it can be done safely. If the fire is spreading, evacuate the area and call emergency services.

Caution: Do not use water on electrical fires.

  • Overloaded Circuits

First, determine which circuits are overloaded by unplugging devices or turning off non-essential equipment. After that, spread the electrical load by plugging devices into different circuits. If the problem persists after taking these measures, consider upgrading the electrical panel or adding new circuits. A professional electrician can evaluate the overall electrical capacity of your home and recommend appropriate solutions.

  • Frequently Tripping Breakers

Start by determining which appliances or devices are causing the breaker to trip. Next, unplug or relocate devices to distribute the electrical load. If the issue persists, consult with an electrician to assess and address the problem.

  • Flooded Property

If there's a risk of flooding in your property, turn off the power at the main circuit breaker. Do not touch electrical appliances or outlets if they are wet or submerged. Once the water recedes, have a professional electrician inspect your electrical system before restoring power.
