Safety Tips for Kids

  • Do not touch electrical cords that are broken or have wire showing.
  • Do not play with or bite electrical cords.
  • Do not stick fingers or any other objects into light sockets, appliances or electrical outlets.
  • Do not overload outlets with too many plugs.
  • Do not pull on cords to unplug appliances. Hold on to the plug itself.
  • Do not touch anything electrical while you are wet or standing in or near water.
  • If you ever find a power line that has fallen, stay away from it and report it immediately to an adult. Hopefully, they will take the proper measures to have it removed.
  • Do not fly kites, model airplanes or balloons near power lines.
  • Do not climb power poles or trees close to power lines.
  • Do not touch or go near electrical equipment. Stay away from anything marked Danger, High Voltage or Keep Out.
