What you can do before the electrician arrives.
Things to do before an emergency:
Restoring electrical systems and evaluating damage to appliances are high priorities after flooding. But before any electrical system is turned on, it should be thoroughly checked for short circuits by an electrician. It is wise to ask your power supplier for advice and assistance.
Some newer homes and businesses may have a ground fault circuit interruption system with their circuit breaker. This will probably need to be replaced.
