Electrical safety featured in American Sign Language video

title

By Lisa Braxton

NFPA has produced a library of American Sign Language videos; an electrical safety video is among them. Available on the electrical safety page of the NFPA website, the video includes a voice over and open captioning, and provides an overview on the care that needs to be taken when using electricity, the proper way to plug in appliances, and what to do if fuses blow or circuit breakers trip. It can be a companion piece to the electrical safety toolkit, a resource for conducting a community electricity safety awareness campaign.

NFPA has also produced American Sign Language videos on the topics of heating, cooking, and smoking safety.
