Electrical Safety

 

“May is Electrical Safety Month. Take a few minutes to look around for electrical hazards in your home and correct them,” said State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey. “Look for overloaded outlets; make sure heat generating appliances are plugged directly into the outlet, not a power strip or extension cord; make sure electrical cords are not underneath rugs or pinched behind furniture, and laptops and phones are charged only on hard surfaces, not on beds or sofas.”

Never leave children, disabled or elderly adults or pets in parked vehicles. Studies have shown that the temperature inside a parked vehicle can rapidly rise to a dangerous level for children, pets and even adults. Leaving the windows slightly open does not significantly decrease the heating rate. The effects can be more severe on children because their bodies have not developed the ability to efficiently regulate its internal temperature.
