​Electrical Safety Tips For The Spring

Did you know that the changing of the seasons can have an impact on how you use your electrical system? It’s true! Below are some safety tips to keep in mind this spring.

  • When a wood or metal ladder comes into contact with a power line, it can result in a tragedy. To prevent this, make sure that all ladders are at least 10 feet away from power lines.
  • As the weather gets nicer, you may find yourself spending more time in the great outdoors. If you plan on using an extension cord outside, make sure it is intended for outdoor use.
  • Before using an electric device outdoors, inspect it for damage. Never use an electrical device that has frayed cords or damaged plugs.
  • Once you are done using an outdoor tool or appliance, remember to unplug it. Leaving it on will only cost you more money on your electric bills.
  • We all know that April showers bring May flowers. It is also important to note that water and electricity do not mix! To make sure they never meet, do not use an electrical devices in the rain.
