Electrical Safety

May is National Electrical Safety Month!

National Electrical Safety Month, which occurs each year in May, is a program aimed at educating people about safety around electricity.  The goal is to help reduce the number of fires, damage and loss of property, and injuries resulting from electricity and related accidents.

The 2020 theme selected by the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), the non-profit organization that runs the educational annual program, is "Smart Home".  Topics highlighted include electrical safety while working from home, childproofing, extension cord safety, and performing home renovations to code.  ESFI has also included a downloadable coloring book for kids!
