When to Call
Living in Brisbane, we are often affected by powerful seasonal storms that can take down the power to your property and those around your neighbourhood. Power outages and downed power lines are common and if this has happened to you, your first call needs to be to your electricity company as it’s their responsibility to get your power restored as quickly as possible at no charge to you.
If your circumstances are isolated to your property alone, and you notice strange metallic burning smells, you see lights flickering, sparks or, you hear crackling noises, these are all warning signs you cannot ignore.
Unnoticed electrical faults are a common cause of house fires, so before it gets out of hand, be safe and call an emergency electrician who can identify and fix any problems well in advance.
Whatever you do, don’t start looking around trying to identify the problem as this is when people lose their lives.
What to do in an Electrical Emergency
If you come across fallen power lines or the mains power has been severed from your property in a storm, call 000 straight away. It is also necessary to call your electricity provider and notify the police. No matter what the electrical emergency, keep other people well away from the location.
If someone has been electrocuted do not touch them until you have turned the power off first. You can separate the injured person from live wiring and cabling with a non-conductive item such as a broomstick and call the emergency services as soon as possible.
Preventing Electrical Hazards
We regularly service our cars to prevent breakdowns, so the way we look at maintaining the electrical side of our properties shouldn’t be treated any differently. Most electrical emergencies can be avoided with regular testing and basic maintenance as well as understanding the most important things to do in an emergency.
Get appliances or equipment checked at home or place of business every year. We provide a test and tag service using specialised equipment to identify any underlying issues in advance.
Replace Old Items
Don’t hold onto those old appliances. Replace them with new energy-efficient appliances. The replacement cost compared to your health and safety should be non-negotiable.
Watch, Listen & React
If you see any loose wires, cables, sockets or light fittings, or you notice sparking or strong metal smells, don’t put it off to tomorrow, have it looked at sooner rather than later.
Ensure your switchboard can handle additional appliances and equipment such as air conditioning. Overloading a switchboard can also cause serious problems such as fire, so having them replaced or upgraded is well worth the cost.
If Unsure, Don't Cut Into It
Renovating a property can be highly rewarding but also hazardous. Don’t cut into or knock down walls or ceilings unless you are completely sure there is no electrical wiring behind it. If in doubt, talk to the experts at Savelect.
Know How To Turn It Off
Know how to turn all the power off (and on) at your switchboard, especially for emergencies and power outages during storm season. Understand the basics of circuits, so you can switch on or off what you need to, instead of everything.
