Frequently Asked Questions about Emergency Electrician

An electrical emergency is an electrical related issue that poses a serious risk to you, your family, or your home.

Some common electrical emergencies include:

  • Power outage
  • Sparking appliances or outlets
  • Humming or buzzing circuit breaker
  • Overloaded powerpoints
  • Safety switches tripping
  • Regularly blown fuses

When you have a power failure or one of the many other electrical emergencies and need an electrician to help resolve the problem, we can help.

First, you should check your switchboard. If a blown fuse is the problem, you can easily turn your power back on.

If this doesn’t work, you’ll need to contact your energy provider. Power outages maps should be accessible to tell you if this is a planned or widespread outage.

If there is no straightforward answer, contact a licensed emergency electrician immediately.

In the event of an electrical emergency, if someone has been shocked or electrocuted, DO NOT touch them. First call emergency services (000).

Shut off the power and, if safe to do so, pull out the appliance that has caused the shock from the wall. Again, if it is safe to do so, administer first aid.

Until an ambulance arrives, make sure that the injured person remains still and laying down. The phone operator will provide assistance and advise while you wait.
