DURING A FLOOD
|Refrain from using any electrical appliances and ensure that the main switch has been switched off to avoid getting electrocuted.
|If water level rises, contact TNB CareLine at 15454 or Facebook TNB Careline in order to disconnect the electricity supply immediately.
|Do not touch any electrical appliances or electric cables submerged in the flood water even though they are coated with insulation.
|Stay away from any steel poles or TNB installations submerged in water to avoid the risk of getting electrocuted.
|Ensure all socket outlets are switched off and remove all electrical appliances' power plugs.
|Should your premises be installed with solar PV, switch off the system in order to avoid the electricity supply from being absorbed back into your house wiring system.
|Switch off the main switch before evacuation.
AFTER A FLOOD
|Switch off the main switch before cleaning any electrical appliances or wiring.
|Ensure all electrical switches and appliances submerged by the flood are inspected and tested by an electrical contractor who is registered with the Energy Commission before reusing them.
