Electricity has the power to make our lives more convenient, comfortable and enjoyable. But it also has the power to cause great harm. It is critical that we all know how to take advantage of the benefits electricity offers while avoiding the dangers. This section is designed to help all our customers—from the youngest to the oldest—learn how to be safe electricity users.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured or killed as a result of electrical accidents or problems. The sad part is, many of these problems could be avoided if we would just take a little more care in how we use our electrical appliances and how we act around electrical systems and facilities.
