Important Safety Tips for the Rainy Season

Alabama Rainy SeasonNo matter where you live, during periods of heavy rain and intense thunderstorms, there are important things to remember with regard to your safety and the safety of your loved ones.

It is vital to remember that floods from rain can occur anywhere with gradually rising flood waters or flash flooding that occurs without warning. Water is a mighty powerful force that can quickly overtake people, vehicles and even homes.

Safety Reminders for driving in heavy rain:

If you absolutely must drive in the rain, slow down and drive carefully. If it becomes hard to see, pull over safely until the rain slows down.

Most vehicles will float in only a foot of water - causing the driver to use control and the vehicle to stall.

NEVER DRIVE THROUGH FLOODWATERS!

Water is a conductor of electricity - stay away from waters near downed power lines!

Stay off your cell phone except to call for emergency assistance.

Flooded Buildings or Basements

Turn the electricity off at the main breaker, even if the power company has turned off the electricity on the grid.

Do not walk into a room with both running electricity and water.

Act quickly by drying wet or damp areas with a fan within 24 to 48 hours of a flood.

Always have a safety evacuation plan for your home or business in case of a flood or fire emergency

For these and other safety tips, contact the professionals at John’s Electric.

Monday, January 6, 2020

The sun is the natural source of the most abundant, reliable, and pollution-free power in the world. However, problems with solar power, namely the expensive cost and inconsistent availability, have prevented it from becoming a more utilized energy source. Just like everything, eventually, it will be more affordable for the average homeowner. Could it be the new way people light up their homes in Alabama?

What others say about John's Electric Service

Even though I thought the price was a little high the service was fantastic. Aubrey came right away and did a great job. He cleaned up all of the "mess". I can't tell you how much that was appreciated. I have had other contractors that left all of the packaging, etc when they completed their work--as if they just couldn't be bothered. it was greatly appreciated

I was very satisfied with the service. I drilled a hole in my main service line on a holiday, and they had me up and running the same afternoon. Thanks!!

I had a strange electrical issue in my home, and I was expecting it to be an expensive repair. Aubrey came out very quickly, ran some tests, and knew exactly what it was. He repaired it for a fraction of the cost of what I was expecting. I will absolutely call John's Electric any time I need a professional electrician. I highly recommend this company.

Aubrey was here less than half an hour after I called, had the problem identified within 5 minutes and had the problem solved within 15 minutes. He was friendly and professional.
