There is an absence of sound, safe operating procedures utilized
when responding to, and operating in an electrical crisis. Responding
to Electrical Emergencies bridges this gap by incorporating NIOSH
study recommendations into a multi-level training system focusing on
safe effective response tactics.
Responding to Electrical Emergencies is designed to help responders understand electricity and how to effectively respond to electrical emergencies safely by accomplishing three specific goals:
To increase their overall knowledge of electricity, its properties, potential hazards, and safety at the scene of an electrical emergency
To help emergency responders develop safety procedures and industry-recommended practices
To develop the critical keys to safety—a positive attitude and a strong, healthy respect for the hazards of electricity.
