As NFPA works alongside the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) to increase electrical safety awareness throughout May—National Electrical Safety Month—we take a look at safety during flooding. Flooding can occur anywhere, but water and electricity don’t mix. Electrical hazards may linger after flood waters recede. ESFI provides an infographic and NFPA has a safety tip sheet that can be used to reinforce messaging noting dangers and ways to reduce risk. National Electrical Safety Month was introduced by ESFI in the mid-1990s to bring awareness to home electrical safety. The campaign highlights safety activities throughout the month that can be used by safety advocates, educators and consumers.
