Safety during heavy rains, severe storms, or other bad weather

The best safety tip we can recommend is to prepare. If you live in a climate or location prone to particularly bad weather (think tropical cyclones, strong winds, or heavy rainfall) you should prepare your home and your family.

Consider:

  • An emergency kit
  • A torch and spare batteries
  • Water supply
  • Non-perishable food
  • Taking photos of your home for insurance claims
  • Securing outdoor furniture
  • Checking window and door fittings

Electrical damage after bad weather

Once wild weather has passed, there are some important safety precautions you must take.

Damaged power lines

Power lines outside of a property are the responsibility of power companies. After severe weather, they work to restore power in your neighbourhood. Be patient.

Water damage

We all know water and electricity do not mix, so if appliances are at risk of water damage, under no circumstances should you inspect, touch, or try to repair them.

Fuse box or safety switch issues

After severe weather, fuse boxes may require electrical repairs. At most, a homeowner can flick the safety switch, but beyond that, you must call a licensed electrician to perform any electrical work.

Is your home recovering from recent severe weather? Contact Briggs Electrical for a 24 hour emergency electrician response. Call now!
