Every now and again the DFES responds to emergencies where the incident leaves us thinking about how simple accidents could have devastating consequences.

That said, the DFES, as well as the Royersford Fire Department, responded to an incident where a ladies ring made its way onto the prongs of an electrical cord. Once energized, the ring caused a direct short in which thankfully, tripped the branch circuit's protection (circuit breaker).

The results involved a burnt electrical outlet, an arc damaged appliance cord, and a damaged ring.

Please be careful when using electrical appliances.
