What are some basic safety tips I should be aware of?
Check electrical cords for damage. Don’t mend them, replace them! Keep flammable materials from heaters and lamps. Use extension cords sparingly and only for short amounts of time. Don’t plug to many appliances into one cord, this may cause overheating and fires. Don’t place power cords under furniture, carpets, or rugs. Never staple or nail cords to walls and other objects. Check your fire alarm system every six months.
