Cleco reminds customers to decorate safely

Cleco reminds customers to keep safety top of mind when decorating their homes and businesses this holiday season. Taking the necessary precautions when installing holiday decorations, especially lights, help keep you and your family safe.

According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, incidents of home fires and electrical accidents typically increase during the winter holiday season.

“While holiday decorations help make the season festive, customers should be mindful of potential hazards,” said John Melancon, Cleco general manager of corporate safety. “Reading and following manufacturer instructions when setting up electrical decorations, as well as periodically checking them throughout the season, is one easy way customers can help keep their families, homes and businesses safe this holiday season.”
