Welcome to National Electrical Safety Month!

May is National Electrical Safety Month. Each year we launch a public safety campaign to help spread the word and educate the community about how they can both resolve existing electrical issues and keep them from arising in their home and business.

The 2020 National Electrical Safety Month theme is “Smart Home” and focuses on the lifesaving devices that keep a home smart, safe and secure.


This year we will be doing a virtual campaign. Each weekday in the month of May, we will be posting a video both here on our website and also on our Facebook page (you can like us on the right hand side of this page). The first video will be posted Friday, May 1st. We hope you’ll follow along and join the conversation!
