Stay Safe While Using Electricity

May 18, 2020

Safety is the highest priority for Union Power, and as your local energy provider, we encourage our members to make safety a priority, too. May is National Electrical Safety Month, but it’s important to take safety precautions year-round.

Here are some simple tips:


 Check it. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets—those that protect against electrocution— should be used in any area where water and electricity could mix, including kitchens, bathrooms, garages and outdoors, and should be tested monthly. You should also check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors once a month to ensure they are working properly.
