As the calendar turns to July, we are all ready to celebrate Canada Day! The TCA Electric family is locally based, so just like our customers and readers, we can’t wait to celebrate Canada Day with our friends and family. On behalf of everyone here at TCA Electric, we’d like to wish you and yours a happy holiday, share a few electricity safety tips, and give a big thank you to all of our customers, new and returning, who have called on our electricians in Vancouver this year!
Wishing you a happy – and safe – holiday
It’s time to celebrate, and we know you can’t wait to fire up the grill, throw on some music, and enjoy Canada Day with your family and friends. But as with any holiday, it’s important to take the right precautions to make sure the celebration isn’t interrupted or cut short by any unexpected surprises. Below, we’ve shared some important electrical safety tips to keep in mind for the holiday weekend.
Electricity and water
As Canada Day is a summer holiday, it’s the perfect time to spend outdoors with the whole family. However, if you’re using water to cool off take care where you plug in and run electrical appliances. Make sure any power cords are clear of hoses, pools, lakes or other water sources, and never place electrical items such as a radio or speaker on a floatie in the water. Electricity and water are both important components of a fun holiday – as long as they’re kept separate!
Know your limits
With cooking appliances, stereos, and multiple phone chargers all vying for outlet space as the family visits, take care not to overload circuits by plugging in too many items at once. This is especially true if your home still has a fuse box. No one wants to be left out in the dark and miss out on family holiday fun!
Holidays are a time for family and celebration – but that means they’re also full of distractions! Take care this Canada Day not to leave electrical appliances unattended and be sure to turn them off as soon as you’re done using them. This goes for more than electrical appliances. After you’ve finished with barbequing, make sure your grill is turned completely off, be it gas or charcoal.
From our family to yours: Thank you!
Often informally known as “Canada’s birthday,” worth celebrating in its own right, Canada Day also marks the midpoint of the year. So, as we all take time to celebrate the holiday with our families, friends, and loved ones, the TCA Electric family would also like to celebrate you, our customers! We’ve had a great year so far, providing quality electrical services throughout Vancouver, and it wouldn’t be possible without our valued customers. Thank you, and here’s to a wonderful second half of 2019!
