Electrical Safety Tips

United Illuminating also reminds you to take caution while using electricity.

ALWAYS STAY FAR AWAY FROM DOWNED POWER LINES and assume that they are live and dangerous. Call UI to report any damage. Be sure to keep children away from electrical outlets or contact your local electrician for outlet cover installation.

Keep lighting and all electrical appliances away from any water source. Water and electricity don’t mix and can cause serious injury.
