Kinds of Electrical Emergencies:
Many electrical emergencies can put you in danger. These include:
Storms and other wild weather are common causes of fallen powerlines. Fallen powerlines are extremely dangerous.
External issues such as storms, transformer failures and misuse by other users are common causes of power outages. If an outage occurs otherwise, it could be due to faulty and frayed wires within your electrical system.
Overloaded outlets can cause electrical fires. If you notice brown staining or burning around your outlets, it could be a sign of a serious problem and can lead to electrical fires in your home. Other causes of electrical fires could be keeping flammable materials near electrical light sources such as lightbulbs.
Other electrical emergencies can occur due to misuse of or faulty electrical appliances, faulty wiring, water damage, overloaded outlets, faulty circuit breakers and more. Electrical emergencies in or around your home should be dealt with by a local emergency electrician.

What to do in an electrical emergency
Electrical issues are dangerous. If anyone is in immediate danger, call 000 immediately.
If you encounter an electrical emergency, there are steps you can take to keep yourself safe, while also resolving the issue at hand.
You should have a list of emergency contact numbers in your home. These numbers can include your local power provider, your trusted local electrician, as well as emergency services. Having these numbers handy means you can act on an issue as soon as it happens with no delay.
You need to keep calm. Being calm will enable you to help those in danger, as well as answer any critical questions quickly and accurately.
You must keep a safe distance from all electrical hazards. Electricity is highly volatile and can kill. Only trained professionals must deal with electrical hazards.
- If the hazard is fallen or damaged powerlines, stay at least 10 metres away.
- If the hazard is in your home, move away from the hazard, such as in another room. Ensure other family members, such as children and pets, are kept away from the hazard.
Once you’ve established nobody is in danger, and you’re a safe distance from the hazard, contact an electrical professional. For infrastructure issues, such as fallen powerlines, contact the electrical power supply company, as well as the local police. For household electrical issues, contact a trusted local electrical contractor. Never do your own electrical work.
