Electrical Safety in Your Home or Business


We all rely on electricity for daily tasks and it's easy to become complacent about the dangers of electricity around homes and businesses.

Every year, incidents involving electrical equipment cause fires, injuries and even death. Remembering some simple tips can help protect your family and property.

  • Have a fire extinguisher approved for an electrical fire.
  • Pull the plug, not the cord and don't use appliances or electronics with frayed or damaged cords.
  • Keep kids away from cords and plugs, and review electrical safety with older children.
  • Limit the number of devices plugged into a single circuit.
