East Village residents and businesses love their outdoor spaces and use lighting to improve the look and safety of their homes and workplaces. SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW offers these tips from the National Fire Protection Association for outdoor electrical safety:

Outside Electrical Work

  • Have a qualified electrician do all electrical work
  • To prevent an electrical shock, make sure all your outside electrical receptacles are ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected
  • Have a professional tree cutting service trim any branches that might fall into electric wiring

Equipment Safety

  • Use lighting and power tools that are listed by a qualified test laboratory and make sure they are made for outdoor use
  • Store your electrical tools indoors
  • Keep electric tools away from children
  • Keep the area around your electric meter and other electrical equipment clean
  • Check lighting and extension cords for damage before using. Replace any damaged cords right away
  • Use extension cords that are listed by a qualified test laboratory and are marked for outdoor use.
  • Extension cords are not meant for long-term use
