Safety for your Kids
Warm, sunny days beckon the child in all of us to head outside and play. Safe Electricity recommends that families review and stress to children to follow simple electrical safety rules for safe outdoor play.
When designing an outdoor play area for your children, do not install playground equipment or swimming pools underneath or near power lines. Protect all family members from serious shock and injuries by installing and using outdoor outlets with ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI). Use portable GFCIs for outdoor outlets that don’t have them. Be careful using electrical appliances outdoors, even if plugged into GFCI-equipped outlets.
