Escape Plan For The Family
Don’t Overload Power
Try to avoid plugging too many things into power-points, and avoid using numerous adapters. Where need be, installing additional power-points around the home is the best option. Always ask assistance from a licensed electrician when you want to install additional power points so you can position them in the safest area in the house.
