Important notice to members with flood damage

Water damage does not end with changing carpet and removing drywall that has become wet. If your property was damaged by the flood it is important that you have an electrician inspect your system prior to power being restored. This is a SAFETY issue!

Water contamination can lead to exposed wiring, failure of mechanical electrical parts and many other hazards that could lead to serious injury or loss of life.
