Make electrical safety a top priority for you and your family. It’s easy to do and costs very little or nothing at all. To get stated, here are some tips:
- Don’t use an electric appliance if you are standing in water, on damp ground or metal, or even if your hands or feet are wet, and you are near sinks and water pipes.
- Before you dig into the ground, check with utilities for lines buried underground by calling 811.
- Replace appliance cords that are frayed or broken. Never place cords through doorways, under rugs, or anywhere they might receive excessive wear.
- Teach kids never to climb utility poles, fences around substations, or trees near overhead lines. More tips for kids (here)
