Summer Electric Tips from Heiser Electric: Crown Point Indiana. Lake county Indiana's Trusted Electrician

Protect your children this summer. Electricity has the power to light lamps that help us see at night and fuel heaters that keep us warm in winter, but it is important not to get in electricity's way because it can harm you. Here are a few safety tips for homeowners and consumers and more importantly, your children:

  • Never play with electrical cords, wires, switches, or plugs.
  • Stay away from fallen power lines. Tell an adult if you see a fallen line.
  • Never use a hairdryer or play an electrical radio or television near a bathtub or sink.
  • Before you climb a tree, look up. If a power line is nearby or touching, stay away from the tree.
  • Never touch anything that runs on electricity when your hands are wet.
  • Fly kites and model airplanes in a wide open field or park-never near overhead electrical wires.
  • Never climb utility poles or electrical towers.
  • Stay away from substations and transformers (green boxes).

Some tips may seem like common sense to most of us, but the fact is many people, especially your children,  don't think about the power of electricity and need to be reminded or made aware of the dangers of electricity. Please feel free to share these tips and reminders with your children.
