Entergy Arkansas Making Spirits Bright – and Safe

Many families will use time off around Thanksgiving to get their holiday decorations out. Entergy Arkansas offers some safety reminders to keep the season joyful and safe.


Christmas tree fires account for hundreds of fires annually, and one in three is caused by electrical problems. December is also the peak month for home candle fires. If you have a Christmas tree, be sure it’s in a container that holds water, and water it every day. Watch THIS VIDEO as a stark reminder of how fast a dried-out tree can go from cheerful to deadly.


  • If you put up lights outside your home, be sure the lights used are designated for outdoor use.
  • Use a nonconducting fiberglass or wooden ladder when working with strings of lights, and stay clear of all overhead wires.
  • Do not replace bulbs when the electricity is on.                
  • Never let light bulbs touch flammable materials such as plastic or dry grass and leaves.
  • For outside use, work only with three-wire grounded extension cords.
  • Use rubber gaskets in light sockets or hang sockets downward to keep water out.
  • Keep connections and lights off the ground by hanging them over wooden stakes.
  • Turn outside holiday lights off when away from home or asleep.


Enjoy some down time with the family this holiday season. Just take a little extra effort to keep yourself and your loved ones safe by reducing risk where you can.
