TAKING A VACATION? Make sure your home stays safe.


BY CHRISTINE SMITH S


ummer vacations are hard to pull off these days, so it’s important that trip-takers have peace of mind while away. Fires can start when lightning storms strike electronics or small appliances; burglaries tend to increase because folks aren’t at home.


The electrical safety checklist below will help you decrease the risk of problems occurring while on vacation:


Turn off all electrical appliances, including toaster ovens, stoves, and curling irons.


Unplug television sets and computers. These items are especially susceptible to lightning and power surges.


Use a timer on indoor lights. Look for one that can be set to a random pattern rather than regular times throughout the day.


Turn off and unplug power strips before you leave home for vacation.


Install motion-detecting lights outdoors.


Set the thermostat to 80 degrees in the summer (55 degrees in the winter) if you plan to leave for an extended period of time.


Give your house key to a neighbor and make sure he or she has a phone number where you can be reached.


Christine Smith writes on electrical safety for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the Arlington, Va.-based service arm of the nation’s 900-plus consumer-owned, not- for-profit electric cooperatives.
