Deck the Halls with Boughs of Safety

NJ Poison Center's Holiday Hazards List: The holidays are an exciting time of year, but it gets hectic with cooking, entertaining, home decorating, gift buying, etc. We become distracted and forget to pay attention to what’s happening around us, especially in our homes. Mishaps and injuries often occur right under our noses. Take a step back from your busy schedule to increase your awareness of the common hazards that occur during the holiday season. The well-being of you and your family depend on it. See complete list.

JCP&L Generator Safety Tips

Jersey Central Power & Light reminds customers to take precautions when using generators during power outages. Emergency power generators offer an option for customers needing or wanting uninterrupted service. However, to ensure the safety of the home’s occupants as well as that of utility company employees who may be working on power lines in the area, the proper generator should be selected and installed by a qualified electrician. When operating a generator, the power coming from the home should always be disconnected. Otherwise, power from the generator could be sent back into the utility lines, creating a hazardous situation for utility workers.
