What should I do if someone near me is electrocuted?

If you believe some has experienced electrocution, follow these steps.

  1. Be sure the person is not in contact with the source of electricity. If they are, do not touch them.
  2. Call 911.
  3. Turn off the electrical source if possible. The best thing to do is move the source of electricity using cardboard, plastic, or wood to avoid shock.
  4. Check the person’s pulse. Begin CPR if needed.
  5. Lie the person on their back. Place their head lower than their core, and elevate the legs while waiting for emergency medical help. Do not touch any open wounds.
