How the electricity your family uses gets to your home may not be a mystery to you, but knowing which breaker to turn off, how to find your breaker box and what to do in case of a fire are things you should definitely know how to do! If you already know how to do this, use this post to teach your children so they know what to do in case of a fire.
Where to find your breaker box
Your home’s breaker box is usually located on exterior wall, close to where the meter is on the outside. Popular places are the laundry room or mudroom, the kitchen or a bathroom.
How to label your breakers
Have a friend help you with this! Turn off any major appliances and unplug computers and TV’s. Turn on all your lights. Have one person stand at the breaker box and one at a time while the other person walks through the house to discover which room’s lights have been turned off. Then you will know which circuit area the turned off breaker affects. Turn it back on and repeat with the rest!
