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:

  • Increase their overall knowledge of electricity, its properties, potential hazards, and safety at the scene of an electrical emergency

  • Help emergency responders develop safety procedures and industry-recommended practices

  • Develop the critical keys to safety—a positive attitude and a strong, healthy respect for the hazards of electricity.


  • The student testing section provides self-guided interactive questions reinforcing each chapter’s learning objectives and the skills necessary to respond safely and effectively to electrical emergencies.

  • Learners are presented with a series of questions that give instant feedback on their performance.

"Statistics cry for safe engagement in the ring of utility emergencies. Knowledge and training will continue to be the foundation by which needless injuries and fatalities are reduced. Responding to Electrical Emergencies—must be placed into the hands and minds of anyone who responds to utility emergencies."
