Flood safety

May 18, 2007

When your basement floods:

* Contact an electric contractor if there are appliances that need to be unplugged in your wet basement.

* If your breakers will not reset or continue to trip, call an electrician. The problem could indicate a short-circuit in your electrical system.

* Do not run an extension cord through a flooded basement to power an extra sump pump or any other electric appliance.
