  • Purchase a surge protector or battery backup.
    During bad weather or storms it is important to protect your electronic equipment. Since power surges or peaks in electricity can damage your electronic equipment; purchasing a surge protector or battery backup to plug your electronics into is the best and easiest way to protect your electronic equipment.

  • Inspect all cords and wiring on a regular basis and immediately repair or replace if needed.
     

  • Safety covers should be placed on every outlet accessible to children.

  • Never put your finger or anything other than an electrical plug in an outlet.

  • Do not force a plug into an outlet if it does not fit.

  • Do NOT cut off ground prongs as this will eliminate the protection grounded cords provide.

  • Never alter the wide prong of a polarized plug, this type of plug appears on most electronic based equipment, which if incorrectly powered can be damaged. To make it fit into an outdated outlet, have the outlet replaced and properly grounded.

  • Weatherproof fixtures and RCD outlets with weatherproof covers should be used for the outdoors.

  • Never use electrical appliances outdoors in wet weather or when the ground or grass is wet unless the appliance is specifically designed and labelled by an independent testing lab for such use.

  • Use extreme caution around swimming pools. Do not use electrical appliances or route electrical cords near pools.
