ESFI sponsors National Electrical Safety Month each May to increase public awareness of the electrical hazards around us at home, work, school, and play. Campaign resources and outreach activities highlight the simple steps we can all take to avoid electrically-related tragedies. Electrical safety awareness and education among homeowners, families, employees, and communities is the key to preventing electrical fires, injuries, and fatalities.
ESFI applauds all of the governors for their commitment to electrical safety
