Winter Electrical Safety Tips

Fire Prevention: One essential step is regularly checking your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are in proper working condition. Replacing their batteries at least once a year is critical to guarantee they’re functioning correctly. You can usually find the recommended replacement interval on the detector’s packaging or in the instructions. Taking these precautions can reduce the risk of electrical fires and keep your family safe.
