Top reasons you need to have a number on call:

The electricity is out, and it doesn’t seem to be affecting other people in my area.

If your electricity is out but the other homes in your area, i.e., your neighbors, still seem to have power, it is possible that there is a short circuit in the electrical system in your home.  Something like this may be hard to locate, and the fact is that once it is located, whatever caused it to trip may continue to cause a problem after the circuit breaker is restarted.  Be sure to correctly identify and correct the cause of the short circuit before sighing relief about the situation.  You may need to call a professional electrician to help you identify the problem.

In the mean time, turn off the power to all lighting in your home or office, any major appliances including your TV, dishwasher, air conditioner, and plugged-in computers.  This will help protect all systems from a circuit overload or high voltage surge when power is correctly returned to your home or office.  In addition, be sure to keep any freezer or refrigerator doors closed to keep food from spoiling.

Call an electrician if you see electrical sparks, flames, or smoke.

Spakes, flames, or smoke are all bad news when it comes to electricity!  If you see sparks or flames, call the fire department or 9-1-1 immediately.  If you see a smoking outlet, call a 24-hour emergency electrician to do the job for you!  They will be able to accurately identify the problem and correct it before the damage becomes more severe or there really is a fire in your home.

If you see wires exposed. . . 

Exposed wires are not something to mess with!  If they are not insulated but are exposed, you are at risk of ventricular fibrillation (a deadly heart condition), arc-flash hazards, neurological effects, electrical burns, and even death.  Be sure to call an emergency electrician as soon as you notice exposed wires, and be sure you or a loved one does not come into contact with them at any time!

Water is coming in contact with outlets and/or wires

Water and electricity do not mix, obviously.  If there is water coming into contact with your wires or an electrical outlet, it is time to call a professional!  They will most likely install ground fault circuit interrupters, or GFCIs once the water is successfully drained and dried appropriately.  The GFCI will be sure to protect you from a serious correct electrical shock in the event of flooding or water contact again.
