“Knowledge can save your life,” said ESFI President Brett C. Brenner. “If you know the signs of an overloaded electrical circuit or how to test a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet, you can prevent electrocution or electrical fires.”

Electrical fires, electrocution and electric shock injuries are the most common threats in regards to your electrical safety.

According to the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC), there was an annual average of 104,500 (unintentional, electrical, residential structure) fires from 1999-2003, which resulted in about 500 deaths, 4,280 injuries, and nearly $1.5 billion in property loss.

HighTower Electric takes all the precautions to help you prevent electrical fires or electric shock due to faulty wires or appliances. This is why we provide a complimentary safety checkup with every service call.

CPSC’s latest data (2003) indicate that there were an estimated 160 electrocutions related to consumer products.
