Good Housekeeping Helps Prevents Fire

Electricity . . . Friend or Foe

Short circuits, misuse and abuse of appliances and cords top the list of one of the major causes of fatal home fires . . . Electricity. Pay attention to warnings against overloading electrical outlets. Plug in only what outlets can take directly – without the use of adapters. Overloading causes fires. Damaged cords should be replaced, not repaired. Do not risk your family and possessions to save a few dollars it would cost to buy a new cord.
