Don’t Let Mylar Balloons Ruin Your Valentine’s Day

If you receive a Mylar balloon this Valentine’s Day, know what to do with it. If it flies away and makes contact with a power line or a substation, it could cause power outages. Keep these balloons tethered, and when it is time to dispose of them, puncture them to release all the helium.

Make safety your valentine this year

Be Prepared for Power Outages This Winter

Severe weather this winter can bring down power lines.  Prepare for outages by getting an emergency preparedness kit ready. This includes: a radio, flashlight, extra batteries, water, food, and extra blankets.

Use Caution with Back-Up Generators

When the power goes out, a back-up generator can be a solution to help stay warm.  Operate it outdoors so it has plenty of ventilation, and never plug a generator into a wall outlet.

"The Safe Electricity editorial calendar, along with their suggested articles and news releases, are valuable tools that I follow to create short, informative sidebars for our website. I change them out each month according to the month and time of year. In addition, I plan to incorporate their suggested social media posts when we go live on our FaceBook page in the fall."
