National Electricity Month in Canada
Electrical Safety Matters: Modernizing Homes with Technology to Power a Changing World
June is National Electricity Month in Canada. This is a momentous cause, given how much Canadians depend on electricity to power their lives at home – from appliances that provide convenience, to electronics and other modern technology that offer comfort and entertainment.
While these technologies offer plenty of benefits, they also place high demand on electrical systems at home, potentially causing serious safety risks.
To commemorate National Electricity Month, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) is launching an electrical safety ad campaign to promote the use of arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) to consumers throughout the month of June. EFC members are encouraged to also participate in this industry-wide electrical safety campaign.
The campaign ads are targeted to homeowners and reinforce the importance of modernizing electrical systems to support the power that runs throughout homes. Canadians depend on electricity to power their lives at home – from appliances that provide convenience, to electronics and other modern technology that offer comfort and entertainment.
Technology Advancements for Safety at Home
Electrical manufacturers have developed proven technologies that safeguard today’s homes. Electrical safety devices such as arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) provide heightened protection by detecting potentially-hazardous arc-fault and quickly cutting off power before a fire starts.
The entire electrical community, including manufacturers, distributors, agents, contractors and regulators, must band together to ensure consumers are protected from possible electrical risks. Electrical contractors are encouraged to offer arc-fault protection to residential customers who are planning home renovations. As consumers update their homes with the latest design trends, appliances, and electronics, they must also be reminded to modernize the electrical system that feed power to various applications. Contact your local electrical distributor and learn about the range of arc-fault protection technology available to your customers.
