Just because people are staying at home doesn’t mean there are no electrical problems. The same measures to follow to prevent electrical emergencies need to continue to be followed. Since the family is at home more hours than usual, stresses can be put on electrical systems. It’s important to know what the warning signs that there may be problems in the electrical system. These signs include:
- Smoke or sparks coming from an electrical outlet, appliance, light fixture or cord.
- Flickering lights, or circuit breakers that flip off.
Following this list of safety precautions will help keep families safe from electrical accidents:
- Replace damaged power cords, including extension cords. Some power cords might be repaired, depending on the extent of damage. Always unplug any power tool or electrical appliance before examining the cord. Rely on expert advice about repairs.
- Don’t overload outlets. Each outlet is designed to deliver a certain amount of power. Plugging in too many devices increases the possibility of fire or an explosion of sparks.
- If an extension cord is necessary, follow all the safety procedures for safe use.
- Keep electrical equipment away from water. Water conducts electricity and touching a wet appliance or standing in water near an appliance can cause electrocution.
- Put tamper-resistant safety caps on unused electrical outlets and keep cords away from children. Follow the Electrical Safety Foundation International safety tips for children and electricity.
