Sparking Residence and Electrical Safety throughout Nationwide Lightning Security Consciousness Week

Mr. Electric®, a Neighborly® company, highlights how homeowners can prepare their home for severe weather this summer season.

WACO, Texas, June 20, 2024–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As part of National Lightning Safety Awareness Week taking place June 23-29, home and business electrical services provider Mr. Electric®, a Neighborly® company, will be bringing awareness to the importance of electrical safety around the home and highlighting key lightning safety tips.

With the arrival of the summer season, the likelihood of thunder and lightning storms increases, making the protection of homes and the electrical equipment in it a top priority. Mr. Electric is reminding homeowners to take precautions ahead of time to help prevent the risks posed by lightning strikes, including:

  • Unplugging electrical items when not in use during storms

  • Checking batteries and connections in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

  • Purchasing a backup generator to keep appliances running in case of severe weather

  • Installing a whole-house surge protector to shield electrical systems from power surge damage

  • Scheduling an electrical safety inspection for signs of deterioration and to ensure all electrical wires, systems, and components meet legal safety standards

“Each year, lightning strikes pose a significant threat to homeowners and their electrical systems. According to Mr. Electric survey data, only 23% of surveyed U.S. homeowners have a backup generator,” says Joel Worthington, president of Mr. Electric. “We want to encourage homeowners to take preventative measures against severe weather before a storm hits and remind them of different ways to stay safe following a storm.”
