A Quick Guide to National Electrical Safety Month 2021

The calendar is filled with national holidays and celebrations–some more serious than others.   For example, there is a National Drinking Straw Day and a National Cream Puff Day (both in January).  On a less zany note, the month of May has been designated National Electrical Safety Month, and the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has declared that this year’s theme is “Connected to Safety.”

This theme seems especially fitting for 2021.  Over the past year and a half we have all been working hard to stay connected to work, family, and school.  Electricity and electronic devices have been a huge part of making that possible.  Whether it’s through Zoom meetings with the office, or FaceTime chats with grandparents, or even just a good old fashioned phone call with a friend, the pandemic has really shed light on just how much we rely on electricity.  ESFI President Brian Brenner states, “Whether you’re working from home, learning from home, or just spending more time at home, it is important to make sure your home is electrically safe, secure, and efficient.”

What to expect from National Electrical Safety Month

In order to promote electrical safety this month, ESFI has published guides on the following topics:

Connected to Safety:  Making Your Home Safe and Efficient

Connected to Safety:  Understanding Electric Vehicles

Home Safety Devices-Renovate Your Home to Code

Each of these guides is free to read, download, and share.  They all provide easy to digest information to help maintain and improve the electrical safety and efficiency of your home.

National Electrical Safety Month and Your Home

We recommend you read through these guides.  Not only do they offer valuable information about keeping you and your family safe, they can also help you to live more efficiently and save money.  When it comes to making electrical repairs or upgrades in your home, please contact a licensed and qualified electrician.
