Electrical Fire Safety 
 
 
  • Never use water on electrical fires, equipment or wires. Because water conducts electricity, dousing water on an electrical fire can cause the fire to intensify.
  • If an appliance is on fire, unplug it or cut the power at the control panel if possible.
  • If the fire is small, use baking soda or a multipurpose or dry chemical fire extinguisher.
  • Prepare and practice a home fire escape plan with your family.
  • Above all, keep your personal safety in mind during an appliance fire. Call 911 and get out of the building if the fire cannot be quickly extinguished.
