Safety Tips

Published Apr 7, 2022

Spring has sprung and the warmer weather means people are spending more time outside.  It’s important to make sure certain electrical components are functioning properly and you are practicing good habits around electrical items both inside and outside of the home.  Here are some simple safety tips to remember:

  • Never let your ladder or tools come in contact with a power line when trimming trees and bushes.
  • Check for damaged cords on power tools and avoid standing in wet areas while using any electrical equipment.
  • Teach kids to never fly a kite or climb a tree near a power line.  If a kite gets tangled in overhead power lines, don’t try to remove it yourself.  Kite string can conduct an electrical current, which can cause serious injury or death.
  • Always call 811 before you dig so underground utilities can be properly marked.
