Our electric company here in Arizona offers some safety advice on stringing holiday lights.
* Check for broken sockets, loose connections or bare wires. Discard damaged light sets.
* Indoors or out, use only lights and extension cords with the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) label.
* Don't overload outlets or extension cords.
* Reduce the risk of fire by switching to decorative light strings that use light-emitting diode(LED)
