Electricity is a danger to all ages.

    • Wear proper equipment and clothes when working on backyard renovations
    • Examine all cords before use
    • Use only weather-resistant heavy gauge extension cords outdoors
    • Do not overload your generator
    • Store fuel away from living areas in properly labeled containers
    • Keep children away from portable generators
    • Have an experienced electrician perform wiring for a pool, hot tub, or spa
    • Do not swim during a thunderstorm
    • All electrical appliances, equipment, and cords should be at least 6 feet away from water
