In recognition of National Electrical Safety Month, Homestead Public Services is urging Homestead residents and businesses to review important electric safety measures that can prevent electrically related fatalities, injuries and property loss before, during and after severe weather or natural disasters.
“Storms and natural disasters create many hazards, including electrical hazards that can be life-threatening. We advise all Homestead residents and business owners to treat electricity with extreme caution before, during, and after these types of events,” said HPS Energy Director Barbara Quiñones. “With hurricane season just around the corner, now is the time to have a licensed electrician address any potential electrical hazards around your home or business.”

To commemorate National Electrical Safety Month, the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) spearheads an annual campaign to educate key audiences about the steps that can be taken in order to reduce the number of electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries and property loss. This year's theme is "Electrical Safety During Natural Disasters" and focuses on the importance of preparing, weathering and rebuilding after natural disasters.
