Electric fires may be devastating in homes and businesses alike if basic precautions are not taken. Faulty electrical components such as plugs, lights, extensions, and wiring are the most prevalent sources of electrical fires in the home. Make sure you and your loved ones are never in danger from electrical current by staying in a well-ventilated area. The public should also be taught how to respond to electrical fires so that lives and property are not lost.
Although electric fires pose serious risks, there are steps you may take to mitigate the situation as soon as you become aware of it. Avoiding fear and actively seeking a resolution should be your top priority.
If an electrical fire breaks out in your home, you should take the following measures right away.
It is imperative that you cut off the power immediately; if there is a main switch or isolator, you must use it to prevent the fire from spreading. You should use a fire extinguisher or a fire blanket if the fire continues to burn. When used to smother a fire, the fire blanket cuts off the blaze's oxygen supply.
This calls for the employment of a Class C fire extinguisher, which was designed for just such an emergency. Before utilising a fire extinguisher, it should be inspected.
If the blaze is too large to handle, you may want to contact the local fire department or police.
