The ‘Tip of the Week’- It only takes a few moments to make sure if your electrical appliances, tools and outlets are safe and a fraction of a second for an accident to occur. Protect small children and pets by using plastic safety covers on all unused outlets and keep cord out of sight and reach. Make sure all electrical devises are in good repair, if a damaged wire inside a tool or appliance touches the body of the devise it would be the same as touching a live wire. Don’t attempt to fix an electrical appliance or tool while the unit is plugged in.
