The rising awareness on fire safety and prevention today triggers homeowners across the world to ensure their homes are safe from fire-related events and are properly equipped should an accident happen. With a majority of household fires being caused by faulty electricity incidents, Everest Electrical demonstrates how high-standard safety methods are vital for protecting life and valuable possessions.
(PRWEB) June 26, 2012
The catastrophic blaze in a Qatar daycare made global headlines recently due to its high fatality rate that included 13 small children. The blaze reportedly spread so fast that it took the lives of two-year-old triplets who were taken under the care of the nursery, four teachers, and two fire-fighters. Investigators say the incident was traced to sparks caused by faulty electrical wiring on a fluorescent light. That it happened inside the wealthy emirate’s largest shopping mall further raised fears across the world on the safety of public and private structures, even for those that should have sufficient resources such as commercial venues, to invest in quality electrical services.
To prevent similarly devastating losses, authorities throughout the globe are putting an emphasis on raising awareness about the proper installation and maintenance of electrical systems with the help of reputable electrical contractors to prevent accidental fires. In Australia alone, more than 11,000 household fires happen each year, with the most fatal incidents caused by electricity reasons, Fire Services say. These fires, according to a government-funded study entitled “The Cost of Fire in Australia,” result in over 100 fatalities, 3,000 injuries and approximately $8,400 million loss which includes damage to properties and recovery costs.
Given this huge threat of fire to lives and properties, industry leader Everest Electrical takes the initiative to disseminate vital and relevant information to the general public on ensuring electrical safety in their homes. Recently, the company’s licensed electrician Sydney staff demonstrated how professionals can execute proper rewiring, electrical flow monitoring, electrical equipment installation and other electrical services according to industry safety standards.
The electrical contracting firm emphasizes the need for homeowners to consult with professionals, given the large electrical load required in most average homes today. While residential properties in the past years usually had only one power point and one centre light, modern dwellings now typically feature multiple outlets and light fittings for every room. The Everest Electrical demonstration showed how only highly trained and experienced electricians can determine whether a rewiring or a state-of-the-art safety switch installation is the best option.
Another vital safety point includes installing effective smoke alarms and replacements. Fire officials say faulty smoke alarms have been the cause of tragic deaths and losses that should have been preventable with early detection. As a counter-measure, New Smoke Alarm Regulations 2011 now require all residential properties to be installed with smoke alarms by a licensed electrical contractor. Everest Electrical can advise homeowners whether they would need to purchase a new system or just need to upgrade their existing ones, and apply all safety and legal electrical requirements.
“Electricity doesn’t offer second chances” is the constant safety reminder of Everest Electrical. With professional, highly-experienced and reliable electrical services, homeowners today can make sure their electrical systems are in top-notch condition to make living safer and more convenient.
