Posted in COVID-19

Electricians Are Essential

Even during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak in Canada, electricians have been deemed vital and allowed to work since the beginning of the pandemic. The nature of the trade contributes to the safety and wellbeing of the public. Not to mention, maintaining a lifestyle that few are willing to give up. Where would we be in a pandemic without electricity? It doesn’t take much thinking to propose many reasons why we need our electricians.

Electrical Emergencies

Hospitals, use computers, robotics, and many electrical devices to keep people alive. An obvious example is ventilators that are needed for ones with advanced cases of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. The truth is that there are thousands of electronic machines or, electrical dependent medical devices in modern hospitals. Many medical buildings cannot afford to lose power even for a moment. Electricians are needed to prevent failures like this and maintain backup electrical systems. (One of Medley Electrics Services)


At the residential level there are many situations where electricians are also essential. For example, even the smallest of renovations often include moving or adding outlets or switches. The Ontario government mandates that a qualified electrician be used even at that level. This may at first seam excessive, but the motivation or the spirit of that requirement is safety.
