Electrical Fire Safety
Here are a few ways to prevent home electrical fires:
- Replace cracked, damaged and loose electrical or extension cords.
- Major appliances like refrigerators and stoves should be plugged directly into a wall outlet.
- Clean lint filters every time you use the dryer. Clean your dyer vent ductwork every year.
- Don't overload your extension cords. Use them for temporary purposes only.
- Use power strips that have internal overload protection.
