Wishing You a Safe Holiday Season

While holiday family gatherings may look different this year due to COVID-19, some traditions like holiday decorations remain the same. Holiday lights can help brighten any mood and spread holiday cheer, but they can also be a source of electrical fires. It's important to take some basic precautions to ensure your family remains safe and injury-free during the holidays. Avoid plugging too many decorations into an outlet and check for overhead power lines before using a ladder to put up outdoor decorations. Keep your yourself and your loved ones safe with these holiday safety tips from the Electrical Safety Authority.

From our LADWP family to yours, we wish you a healthy and safe holiday season!
