Kids playing outside, and adults getting some much needed yard work done can help just about anyone get in a good mood. No matter what activities you start participating in, electrical safety should always be on your mind.
- When using power cords, and extension cords, always be sure that they are kept away from water.
- If flying a kite or paying with a model airplane or drone, always stay far away from any power lines. If you ever get it stuck in your power lines, never try to remove it yourself.
- To save a few dollars, don’t try and use the air conditioner unless absolutely needed. Open a few windows in your house, to create a cross-wise breeze. This can naturally cool your home when spring offers some hot days.
- Don’t use any electrical mowers around water or on wet grass. When working outside and using an extension cord, be sure that it’s insulated.
- Power lines can be very dangerous. Be sure that you are at least 15 feet away with any materials, tools or parts of your body. Especially when climbing a ladder or handling a pool cleaning tool, be aware of your surroundings.
Each month offers it’s own electrical safety issues. When you start spending more time outside, it’s important to be more away of the electrical tools your are using and the electrical lines on your property.
