In an emergency
If you are in a life threatening situation call triple zero
In the event of an electric shock do not attempt to touch or rescue a person until the power has been cut off and the situation has been made safe by a suitably qualified person. People who are in contact with an electrical source are themselves conductors of electricity until the power is turned off.
