Electrical fire hazards

  1. Check electrical items, especially those with long cables. Are they securely placed? Are they not posing any risk of fire or someone tripping?
  2. Do not overload your electrical outlets.
  3. Never bundled electrical cords together or run electrical cords under rugs or carpet.
