Christmas Lights Safety Warning

By Tanayah Wakefield

There’ll be plenty of people stringing up Christmas lights in the coming days and Energex is reminding them to treat these decorations as they would any electrical appliance.

According to Energex Area Manager Matt Hilder, just taking a few precautions when installing Christmas lights or similarly powered decorations can mean the difference between a happy festive season and a potential life-threating electrical nightmare.

“Powered Christmas decorations should be treated as you would with any electrical appliance in the home. When used properly they’re safe. But when used incorrectly, they can become potentially deadly hazards,” he says.

“Before installing Christmas lights, check that wires, fittings and lights are in good working order and if they appear to be faulty or you have concerns, either have them checked and repaired by a qualified technician or simply throw them out.
