Unplug all small appliances when not in use.
Use the correct size of fuse.
Never replace a busted fuse with other materials.
Avoid octopus connections/overloading.
Secure loose electrical cords.
If light switches or outlets feel warm when turned on or in use, turn them off.
If plugs seem to fit loosely in a wall outlet, check the plugs or the outlet.
Pull the plug, not the wire.
Use outlet covers and outlet plates to help prevent electrocution.
