Due to the current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 virus, many of us have spent plenty of time at home lately and will likely continue to do so for several weeks to come.

If that is your plan, then your friends at the Grand River Dam Authority want to remind you that spring cleaning time is also a great time to perform those important spring electric safety inspections.

Here are a few inspection steps, passed along from the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), that most of us can do on our own.

Again, these are just a few of the tips you should keep in mind as you do your indoor spring cleaning. For more electrical safety information, visit Your friends at GRDA want you to stay safe!
