Electrical safety tips around the house:

Remember electricity and water don’t mix. Never use electrical appliances close to water.

Take an electrical tour throughout your home, searching for potential hazards to be corrected.

Never put anything into electrical outlets not intended for them.

Make sure electrical outlets are not overloaded.

Check all electrical and extension cords to make sure they are not cracked, frayed, or covered by rugs or furniture.

Use the appropriate wattage light bulb for lighting fixtures.

Keep electrical appliances away from damp or hot surfaces, and make sure they have appropriate air circulation.

Outdoor Electrical Safety Tips:

Electric-powered lawnmowers should not be used when grass is wet.

Inspect power tools and electric lawn mowers before use for frayed power cords, or broken housings or plugs.

When using tools or extension cords outdoors, make sure they are marked for outdoor use.

Unplug all portable power tools when they’re not being used. Don’t leave power tools unattended, even briefly.

Metal ladders conduct electricity. Be careful of overhead wires and power lines.

If you see a downed power line, stay away from it and call 9-1-1.
