The activity of the Surrey Electrical Fire Safety Investigation Team (EFSIT) is one of the City of Surrey's key responses to address public safety risks associated with high electrical consumption in Surrey.

The EFSIT is led by the Surrey Fire Service and includes a team of City staff representatives. Provincial legislation (Bill 25) and Surrey Bylaws allows access to electrical consumption data to address properties for potential fire and safety hazards.

Unusually high electrical consumption or unsafe building modification is a public safety threat to the building's owners and to all neighbouring buildings and their tenants as recognized by the EFSIT.
