Electrical Safety Month

Just a reminder to always practice safety around downed power lines. If you see one, don’t touch, don’t run, (shuffle away) and call 911. Don’t forget to keep your pets away from the downed power lines too.

 

Thanks to West Florida Electric Cooperative for posting these photos. Who knew there was a electrical safety month?

Did you know May is Electrical Safety Month. Not an exciting subject but a necessity. Here are a few safety tips for your home.

~Replace or repair damaged power cords and be sure to not plug a bunch of stuff into one outlet or extension cord.

~Don’t overload your outlets.

~Be sure to correctly label all fuses, circuit breakers, and switches in power box and replace damaged ones.

~Don’t yank an electrical cord from the wall, it can damage the plug or the outlet.

~Make sure all electrical cords are tucked away, pets could chew on the cords and people could trip and fall over them.

~And don’t forget to test smoke alarms in your home(every month) and change the batteries(twice a year). Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home.

James Wyatt from the Greenwood Post Office. Be sure to tell him hi next time you are there.
Some of the goodies at the Marianna farmer’s market.
Here are a few of the things I got at the farmer’s market. I have already eaten some of the squash, cucumbers, and most of one of the green peppers. Not sure my purchases will last a week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope your weekend was full of relaxation. We got a lot of rain at my house, but it was much needed rain. I love how this time of year everything is blooming. On Saturday I took my food donations to the Greenwood post office, I thought my donations were a little much to leave for my mail carrier. James Wyatt was awesome! He even let me take his photo. I love our small towns here in the Panhandle. I went to the Marianna Farmer’s Market and got lots of great vegetables and a few plants too. Everyone was so nice, I need to remember to go here more often. They are open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7am to noon till June. I love that I got an excuse to tell me mom how much I love her on Sunday. A mother’s love is a special one.
