FREDERICTON (CNB) - NB Power wishes all New Brunswickers a safe and a happy holiday season with family and friends.

Here are some important electrical safety tips to keep in mind this holiday season:

It is important to keep these safety tips in mind when the holiday season has ended and it is time to take down your decorations. Keeping your outdoor lights up for an extended period will leave them exposed to the elements, which reduces their lifespan and increases the risk of electrical shock and fire. You should take down, inspect and properly store all decorations early in the new year to ensure that they will be safe to use next season.
