Never remove the ground pin (the third prong) to make a three prong plug fit a two- conductor outlet; this could lead to an electrical shock. NEVER FORCE A PLUG INTO AN OUT- LET IF IT DOESN'T FIT. Plugs should fit securely into outlets. Avoid overloading outlets with too many appliances. Replace any missing or broken wall plates. Make sure there are safety covers on all unused outlets that are accessible to children. Check for any hot or discolored outlet wall plates; that may indicate dangerous heat buildup at the connections. Brought to you by Lower Yellowstone Rural Electric Assoc.
