Great tips on reducing the risk of electrical fires. I completely agree that you always need to have at least 2 ways out in the case of emergency. And of course, you can never be too careful.


Great article! I know I'm a little late but here's another helpful article I found with tips on electricity safety around the home: http://www.ecpowersystems.com/resources/Electricity-Safety-Tips-From-a-Power-Supply-Manufacturer.php

Truly, life isn't a cartoon! There are lots of people who have lost their lives and their properties because of electrical safety problems that led to fire. Every month should be National Electricity Safety Month! :)
