Safety Tips

Electric power gives us light and warmth, but without safety precautions, it can also be dangerous. Follow these simple precautions to help insure you and your family's safety:
  • Always hire a qualified licensed electrical contractor for all of your wiring and installation needs. 
  • Replace or repair loose or frayed cords on all electrical devices.
  • Avoid running extension cords across doorways or under carpets.
  • New homes now require tamper proof receptacles, in the older homes install protective caps to protect children
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions for plugging an appliance into a receptacle outlet.
  • Avoid overloading outlets. Consider plugging only one high-wattage appliance into each receptacle outlet at a time.
  • If outlets or switches feel warm, shut off the circuit and have them checked by a qualified licensed electrician.
  • When possible, avoid the use of "power strips" and other devices that allow the connection of multiple appliances into a single receptacle.
  • Place lamps on level surfaces, away from things that can burn and use bulbs that match the lamp's recommended wattage.
  • Never touch anything electrical when you have wet hands.
  • Don’t use electrical appliances such as hair dryers or radios in a wet place or near water.
  • If power is lost during a storm, turn off or unplug electrical appliances so that there’s not a power surge when the electricity comes back on.
  • If there’s flooding, watch out for water around electrical items, and never use appliances if they’re wet.
  • Never play with kites or toy planes near overhead power lines.
  • If a toy happens to get caught in a power line, don’t attempt to remove it yourself.
  • Never prune trees yourself that are near power lines.
  • wire your home with 110volt combination smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • be careful with heaters in the winter, always disconnect them when you leave the room and avoid running the wires under carpet or thru walls
  • have a licensed electrician verify that the electrical ground in your home is connected and installed properly
