Dock Check-Stray Voltage

Dock Check Request – Stray Voltage in the Water

Smith Mountain Lake Marine Volunteer Fire Rescue is offering a free dock check to lake residents.  If you would like us check the water around your dock for stray voltage, complete the form below and someone will contact you to schedule the dock check.

Electric Shock Drowning (ESD) is a drowning that occurs as a result of the person coming into contact with stray voltage flowing through the water.  There are a number of ways electrical current finds its way into the water.  Some of the more common are improperly wired electrical services to boat docks, frayed wires coming into contact with the water and improperly wired or poorly grounded boat lifts.

For more on ESD and preventative tips, check the community interest sections of our Links and Files pages.
