Having an electrical emergency can be an unpleasant experience. Follow the advice below to make sure that the issue is solved as quickly and safely as possible.

If you are experiencing an electrical emergency, follow our advice below:
Make sure everyone is safe
Depending on the cause of the electrical emergency, it could be that someone has become injured or shocked. They might, for example, have come into contact with live unprotected wires.
The first step is to make sure that everyone is safe and to call emergency services if anyone is unwell. Isolating the power and switching it off may be necessary to protect anyone from further harm. If you don’t know how to do this, call us on 0800 788 0629 straight away anytime of day
If wires are still exposed then make sure that everyone stays clear of them, and make sure they know where the wires are. Do not touch the live wires.
If the electricity has been cut off during the night-time, or you have had to turn the power off for safety reasons, then make sure that other people in the building are safe and protected while you take the necessary steps to fix the issue and to restore power.
