ShockAlarm's Mission

Saving Lives

The Mission of ShockAlarm

At ShockAlarm we’re on a mission to save lives. Electric shock drowning, or ESD, occurs when an electrical current enters a body of water and those in the water are paralyzed and the result is often drowning. ESD and injuries from electric current in water can be prevented. We believe that pool and marina safety is paramount and shouldn’t be compromised.

All electric outlets should be protected with Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI). Low voltage lighting should be used in pools and hot tubs. Above all, continuously monitor for electric current that may be seeping into the water by using a device such as ShockAlarm.

Our Inspiration

The list of names and loved ones who have lost their lives due to ESD is far too long. One name that ignited our inventor, Brian Byrd, was the death of 7 year old Calder Sloan of Florida in April 2014. Calder was swimming in the family pool. He was electrocuted and was unable to be resuscitated.
