Don’t let electrical hazards PLAY IT SAFE


of the year. But don’t make yours fraught with danger. Here are some safety reminders: 0253001502


• As you’re decorating, make sure you check for cracked sockets, frayed, loose or bare wires, and loose connections.


• Fasten all outdoor lights securely to trees and other firm supports. Do not use nails or tacks that could puncture insulating cords and damage wires.


• Make sure decorative lighting is well-ventilated, protected from weather, and remains a safe distance from anything flammable like dry leaves and shrubs. Do not coil extension cords while in use or tuck under rugs or drapes.


• Make sure all outdoor electrical lights and decorations are plugged into an outlet protected with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). If your outlets aren’t equipped with GFCIs, have an electrician install them or buy a GFCI


adapter plug. Don’t overload outlets with too many extension cords and strands of lights.


• Keep power cords off walkways and porches that trick-or- treaters may use. You don’t want them to trip.


• Leave the porch light on for trick-or-treaters, and be sure to turn out all spooky lights and decorations before leaving home or going to bed. This will also save energy.
