Common Electrical Emergencies

If you are not careful with your electrical system, it could result in an emergency situation. We understand that it can be frightening experience for anyone involved. However, working yourself into a frenzy will not help the situation. Below are some of the most common electrical emergencies. 
Electrical Shock
Faulty wiring, unstable electrical appliances and frayed cords can cause an electrical shock. Unfortunately, it can lead to burns or even heart failure. Anyone who experiences an electrical shock should seek medical attention immediately. 
A Tripped Breaker
When a fault develops within a circuit breaker box, the switch is tripped. This can happen for a number of reasons, such as an overloaded circuit, faulty connections and fault appliances. 

A Power Cut
When the power cuts out, do not assume that it is the power company’s doing. There could be a problem with your individual home’s electrical system. To be sure, check your trip switch, wiring and appliances for damage.
