Electrical Safety Tips

safety-tips

  • Never insert any metal objects into an appliance, such as a toaster, without first disconnecting it.
  • Be careful not to overload circuits.
  • Keep ladders, antennas and kites away from power lines.
  • Never approach a downed power line. Warn others to stay away and call your electric company.
  • Never touch anyone who is in contact with a power source.
  • Install smoke detectors on every level of your home and outside each sleeping area. If the batteries are supposed to be changed in your smoke detector, change them twice a year when the time changes (Spring and Fall).
  • Consider installing a carbon monoxide alarm to protect you against this odorless gas.
  • Don’t overload outlets by plugging too many appliances into one outlet.
  • Consider all power lines dangerous. Don’t touch!
