• Electrical Fire SafetyFebruary 12, 2016

    Did you know December-March are the peak months for home electrical fires? In this country, there are nearly 47,800 home electrical fires each year. About half of these involve lighting equipment or home electrical wiring. Death due to home electrical fires is highest between the hours of midnight and 6:00 AM. Follow these tips to help reduce your risk of electrical fire:

    • Plug only one heat-producing appliance directly into a wall outlet at one time. This includes items such as coffee makers, space heaters, and microwaves.
    • Never use an extension cord with a heat-producing appliance.
    • If you must use an extension cord for something else, make it temporary.
