Tips for the Home
Here are some tips to use around the home to help prevent electrical accidents.
-Throw away frayed and damaged cords and extension cords.
-Extension cords should only be used temporarily.
-Turn appliances off before unplugging them and pull the plug, not the cord, when unplugging.
-Don’t touch appliances or switches with wet hands.
-Cover electrical outlets to stop children from poking things into them.
-Keep appliances out of the reach of children.
-Make sure outdoor appliances cannot come into contact with pools or puddles of water.
