According to a recent study by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 11,900 Americans were injured by fireworks in 2015, with the majority happening in the month surrounding the Fourth of July. Another 8,700are injured by charcoal/wood-burning and propane grill fires. A grill should always be supervised when in use. Keep children and pets a safe distance from the grilling area to prevent accidental burns or tipping of the grill.

In 2013, fireworks caused an estimated 15,600 reported fires in the U.S., including 1,400 structure fires, 200 vehicle fires, and 14,000 outside and other fires. Grills also cause and average of 8,900 home structure fires or outdoor fires.

Electrical Safety Tips

3/12/2015 (Permalink)

Electrical-related fires account for an estimated 48,000 fires a year.  Many electrical fires in the home or workplace are the result of faulty circuits, overloaded outlets, or electrical failures.  Many electrical fires can be avoided if basic safety precautions are taken.

  • Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords.
  • Avoid running extension cords across doorways or under carpets.  Consider having additional outlets added by a qualified electrician so that you do not have to use extension cords.
  • Avoid overloading outlets.  Plug only one high-wattage appliance into each receptacle outlet at a time.
  • If outlets or switches feel warm or you have flickering or dimming lights, call a qualified electrician.
