Fire Prevention Education

February's "Bright Idea" - Electrical Safety!

From plugging in a phone charger to flicking on a light switch, it can be easy to forget the potential fire danger involved in the use of electricity. Avoid fire danger by increasing awareness of the proper use of electricity and what you need to know when purchasing or installing an appliance or doing home repairs. For example, when purchasing an appliance, make sure it is listed by a qualified testing laboratory and keep lamps and light fixtures away from combustible materials.


Regular cleaning and maintenance of your homes electrical appliances can help reduce the risk of home fires.

Appliances should be plugged into a wall outlet and never plug two appliances that produce heat, such as the toaster and coffee pot, into the same outlet.
