Christmas Lights: Angle 2:

Christmas Lights: Angle 2:

Ergon Energy is urging locals to keep electrical safety in mind when decorating homes with Christmas lights these holidays.

Recommendations include safety switches and turning lights off before bed.

Ergon Energy’s Corporate Communications Manager, Rod Rehbein, says festive lights should also be checked.

Rod Rehbein: “The key thing with electrical safety is to ensure that the lights, if you’ve had them installed for 11 or 12 month nearly, that they are checked. They could have been exposed to heat, humidity, insects and rodents, so having a qualified electrician look over them before they’re being reused will ensure that they’re in good order.”
