When Should You Call An Emergency Electrician?
Most people are aware of the obvious situations where you should call an emergency electrician. These situations include:
- Sparks are shooting out of a power point or appliance
- There is an electrical burning smell
- Your house has lost power, but not the other houses in your street
- The safety switch keeps tripping
- Your circuit breakers (fuses) have blown and are too hot to touch
- The switchboard (fuse box) is sparking, burning or damaged
- Your smoke alarm has lost its connection
- A power pole has fallen near the house
- An overhead main has been damaged by a vehicle
- Loose wires are exposed after damage to the house
- Your home has been struck by lightning
- Vulnerable residents require fast power restoration after an outage
- Your business depends on stock that will spoil if power isn’t restored rapidly.
The warning signs might be less obvious in other situations requiring an emergency electrician – particularly after major outages or hail, flood or fire events.
Electrical damage that may not be visible immediately often poses a real danger to occupants.
Exercise particular caution around damaged solar cells or panels. Compromised solar panels will keep working in the sun and therefore still produce shocks, even after you have turned off the power supply. For example, after flooding or severe storms, solar PV systems require an electrician to conduct an inspection and safely isolate any water damaged components before the solar system is turned back on.
What can our emergency electrician fix?
The Curran team will send out emergency electricians who are fully trained, qualified, and licensed to work on electrical systems connected to the power grid.
Curran Electricians can also conduct an on-the-spot safety check of other electrical hazards around the home or create a surge protection plan to avoid future damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for an emergency electrician to come out?
We have a large team, so we can dispatch one of our electricians as soon as possible.
What should I do while I wait for an emergency electrician?
Our customer support team will inform you when the service technician is on the way.
Why does my safety switch keep tripping?
Your safety switch (RCD) or the circuit breakers will keep tripping if, for example:
You have a faulty appliance that you haven’t located and unplugged.
You are running too many appliances at the same time.
However, call an emergency electrician to investigate these potentially hazardous causes:
- Aged wiring has become worn or faulty
- Recent rain or hail storms have caused damage
- Recent thunder lightning and electrical storms have resulted in surges that trigger RCD sensors
- The safety switch itself is defective.
