​How To Handle An Electrical Emergency

It is no secret that your electrical system gets more usage in the cold winter months. Increased usage can only mean one thing–an increased risk for electrical emergencies. If an electrical emergency occurred in your home, would you know how to handle the situation?  Many homeowners do not. This causes people to panic; which only makes the situation worse. Below are some tips that will help you and your family stay safe.

  • If your home experiences an electrical fire, call the local fire department.
  • Don’t touch any sparking or smoking outlets. Doing so could led to shock or electrocution.
