There’s been a lot of talk about safety leading up to national safe boating week, which began Saturday. Another area of concern when it comes to safety around the water is your dock. Tim Kelly with The Electrical Connection says after high winds and rising waters from events like last week’s storms, it’s especially important to make sure you have your dock and patio area inspected.
You can contact certified electricians and, in many cases, your local fire protection district, to get more information on dock inspections. You can also get more information and safety tips through several websites, including www.electricalconnection.org.
