Get ready for National Electrical Safety Month

Blog Post created by lisabraxton Employee on Apr 26, 2019


May is National Electrical Safety Month, introduced to the public in the mid-1990s by the Electrical Safety Foundation International to bring awareness to home electrical safety for families.

Home electrical fires can start in wiring, electrical distribution systems, and lighting equipment, as well as any equipment powered by electricity, such as cooking, heating, office and entertainment equipment, washers, and dryers.

NFPA has championed National Electrical Safety Month with ESFI by promoting safety activities throughout the month that can be used by safety advocates, educators and consumers. During the next several weeks I’ll be sharing videos, infographics, and tip sheets from both organizations designed to help prevent these types of fires.
