Home improvements and safety tips

  • Childproof your home by installing plastic caps in outlets .

  • When bathing your child, make sure ALL nearby appliances are unplugged.

  • Keep cords out of little children's reach. 

  • Always remember to turn off appliances before you leave home, keep flammable items away from light bulbs, heaters, or toasters,  and replace all frayed or cracked electric cords.

  • Install smoke detectors, keep a fire extinguisher on hand and have a family fire escape plan.

  • Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) are designed to shut off power to prevent serious injury. Use them in bathrooms, garages, near kitchen sinks, outdoors, and other wet areas.

  • An overload outlet is a fire hazard. If your outlets are overloaded, consider having a qualified electrical contractor install additional outlets or circuits. 

  • Extension cords are for temporary use. Never put them under rugs. They can become frayed or cracked without you being able to see the damage.
