Important Safety Tips for the Rainy Season

Alabama Rainy SeasonNo matter where you live, during periods of heavy rain and intense thunderstorms, there are important things to remember with regard to your safety and the safety of your loved ones.

It is vital to remember that floods from rain can occur anywhere with gradually rising flood waters or flash flooding that occurs without warning. Water is a mighty powerful force that can quickly overtake people, vehicles and even homes.

Safety Reminders for driving in heavy rain:

If you absolutely must drive in the rain, slow down and drive carefully. If it becomes hard to see, pull over safely until the rain slows down.

Most vehicles will float in only a foot of water - causing the driver to use control and the vehicle to stall.

NEVER DRIVE THROUGH FLOODWATERS!

Water is a conductor of electricity - stay away from waters near downed power lines!

Stay off your cell phone except to call for emergency assistance.

Flooded Buildings or Basements

Turn the electricity off at the main breaker, even if the power company has turned off the electricity on the grid.

Do not walk into a room with both running electricity and water.

Act quickly by drying wet or damp areas with a fan within 24 to 48 hours of a flood.

Always have a safety evacuation plan for your home or business in case of a flood or fire emergency

For these and other safety tips, contact the professionals at John’s Electric.

Getting smart about Christmas lights in 2018.

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Halloween came and went, and now, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, once the decorating is finished, that is. One of the most visually pleasing parts of the season is all the festive lights in creative places on neighboring houses. But that type of effect isn't limited to just outdoors; lighting plays a big part in Christmas inside as well. A tree with no lights looks dimly like a big plant in the center of the room. That's until the carefully strung lights shine throughout the magnificent green (and sometimes even white) tree and show off what's adorned on the branches. To make sure you get the most of your festive lighting, this year make a switch if you haven't already too smart lighting with LEDs.
