At Mohave Electric, we believe that in a culture of safety, information is a powerful tool, and electricity and safety should go hand in hand.
With the same commitment we ensure our employees are educated and practicing safety at all times, we strive to inform our members of all ages about electric safety in their homes, at work, at school, and at play.
Electricity is a convenience in our modern lives but many people take it for granted. As a part of Mohave Electric’s commitment to safety, we want to remind members of the importance of respecting electricity at home, at work, at school, and at play. Education, awareness and a basic knowledge of electrical safety practices can help keep your family and home safe from electrical hazard. It is the key to preventing unnecessary accidents and fires.
Regular maintenance and safety checks around your home like testing ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) outlets and smoke alarms, vacuuming coils and changing furnace or air conditioning filters should be done regularly. These are easy things to do, but are crucial for the safety of you and your family.
