People are killed and thousands are injured in electrical accidents; more than three people around their homes each week, and more than five at the workplace.
The City of Tallahassee Electric Utility is urging customers to know about safety hazards by checking their homes and businesses.
Some things to be aware of:
- Make sure cords are in good working order and aren't frayed.
- Make sure outdoor outlets have covers.
- Make sure tools are unplugged and out of reach of small children.
