Holiday Safety Checklist

Posted: December 1, 2018

Did you know that nearly half of all home fires occur during the winter?

Follow the Holiday Safety Checklist to identify and correct any potential electrical hazards to ensure your home is safe!

Switches and Outlets

Are any switches or outlets warm to the touch? This may indicate an unsafe wiring condition.

Do plugs fit snugly into outlets? Loose fitting plugs can cause overheating and fires.

Cords

Are any cords cracked, frayed or damaged? Damaged cords can expose wires, causing shock or fire hazard.

Do you use extension cords on a permanent basis? Extension cords should only be used temporarily.
