May is national Electrical Safety Month and throughout the month, NFPA and ESFI have been raising awareness of potential home electrical hazards and the importance of electrical fire safety.

This week we’re highlighting our updated “Keeping Your Community Safe and Energized” toolkit for the fire service. From customized news releases and letters to the editor, to tip sheets (also available in Spanish) and talking points, the toolkit provides resources to help local fire departments spread the word about electrical safety to residents. Just download the information you need, print it out and distribute. Or take advantage of the great information available and provide tips and ideas in your newsletter or on social media. .

Learn more about electrical fire safety on NFPA’s campaign webpage and at, and stay tuned for more great resources throughout the month!
