Electrical Safety Tips

Keep your home and family safe this holiday season with these electrical safety tips: 

  • EVERY NIGHT Before bed be sure to turn off all lights, both tree, outside and, any other decorative lights.
  • REMEMBER 3 STRANDS OR LESS per outlet is a good rule of thumb if you are unsure of strands wattage and maximum watt capacity per outlet. Too many lights per outlet can be hazardous. EXTRA TIP: A power strip with a built-in circuit breaker adds more protection.
  • BE SURE to use OUTDOOR SAFE lights for any outside decorations.
  • NEVER leave a hot oven unattended.
  • NEVER FORCE an appliance with a three-prong plug into a two-prong outlet or extension cord.
  • DO NOT run cords under carpets or rugs, as this can damage the wires and cause a fire.
  • CHECK the wires of all appliances, decorations, and holiday lights regularly. Replace or repair frayed, damaged cables.
