Electrical Safety Inspections
Electrical safety inspections are an easy way to keep your family and home safe from electrical shock, surges and even fires. Injuries from electrocution are serious, and they happen more often than you realize:
An average of 51,000 electrical home structure fires occur each year, claiming almost 500 lives, injuring more than 1,400 people, and causing more than $1.3 billion in property damage (National Fire Protection Association, 2003-2007). In addition, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that nearly 400 people are electrocuted in the U.S. each year.
