MAY - NATIONAL ELECTRICAL SAFETY MONTH

05/01/2018

ELECTRICAL SAFETY TIPS FOR KIDS:

  • Electricity and liquids DO NOT mix! Never place electronics and appliances near water - like next to the sink or tub.
  • Never place a drink near your gaming console. Spills could result in electric shock.
  • NEVER climb trees near power lines and electrical equipment. Same goes for kites and drones - before you fly them, make sure you're far away from any overhead power lines.
  • NEVER pull a plug from electrical outlet by its cord! Pull from the plug to avoid potential shock.
  • Going for a swim? Remember. Never swim during stormy weather. If you hear thunder, immediately exit the pool until the storm has passed.

These are just a few tips to keep in mind. Remember: Electricity is amazing stuff, but you should always play it safe!
