Officials warn parents of viral Tik Tok “outlet challenge”
“Massachusetts high school students are imitating a dangerous viral video circulating on the social media app Tik Tok that has firefighters issuing an alert.” – The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA)
The results of this challenge include sparks and damage to the electrical system around electrical outlets. In some cases, fires, injuries, and even electrocution could result.
In line with the NFPA, Southern Marin and Mill Valley collectively urge the public not to participate in the #outletchallenge and to review educational information on using electrical outlets, and electricity in general, safely.
