NFPA and ESFI share boating and marina electrical safety resources

With summer in full swing, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Electrical Safety Foundation International (FSE) are joining forces to remind boaters, marina operators and swimmers to be aware of the potential electrical hazards that exist on board boats and in the waters surrounding boats, marinas and launch ramps. Electric shock drownings (ESD) can occur when marina or onboard electrical systems leak electrical current into the water. The leak can cause a shock that can injure, disable or kill a person, as reported in the NFPA Journal article, Troubled Waters.
