The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has launched its 2008 Holiday Safety Campaign. This national safety awareness campaign offers a wide variety of resources to help individuals and local communities take steps to prevent the risk of electrical hazards before, during, and after the holiday season.
It is easy to get caught up in the holidays. Whether preparing to entertain guests, attempting to decorate your home and property, or trying to take a budget-conscious approach to holiday gift giving, the intense and time-sensitive demands brought on by the holiday season can be all-consuming - often at the expense of safety. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, nearly 130,000 fires will be reported in December alone, causing more than 400 fatalities and 1,600 injuries.
