Where is the danger?

How often should the check be made?
In accordance with applicable Fire Safety Regulations wiring should be checked once in 10 years. If this period has expired, conduct the check immediately.
Who is allowed to check an internal electrical network?
The quality of wiring and contacts can be checked only by a certified electrician presenting a document confirming their qualification and right to perform such works. For more information on selection of certified electricians see the website of the Certification Department of the Latvia’s Electricians’ Brotherhood or the website of the Latvian Association of Power Engineers and Energy Constructors.
Evaluate safety of your electrical appliances!
Household appliances wear out in time. Cracked insulation and bare wires may be a reason for a dangerous electric injury or even fire. Dust accumulated in electrical appliances increases the risk of ignition considerably.
How to act in dangerous situations?
In case of damage, accidents or any other danger, if you think that it exists, in an electrical network, remember – if you open all automated circuit breakers and interrupt electricity supply, you will protect your home from fire. If you do not know yet, where automated circuit breakers are, find this out as soon as possible and tell your family members!
An automated circuit breaker is a device that interrupts electricity supply automatically in case of overload or short-circuit, thus reducing the risk of electric injuries and ignition of buildings.
