Avoid using a telephone during a thunderstorm. There may be a slight chance of
electric shock from lightning.
Do not use a telephone in the vicinity of a gas leak. Under certain circumstances, a
spark may be created when the adapter is plugged into the power outlet, or when
the handset is replaced in its cradle. This is a common event associated with the
closing of any electrical circuit. The user should not plug the phone into a power
outlet, and should not put a charged handset into the cradle, if the phone is located
in an environment containing concentrations of flammable or flame-supporting
gases, unless there is adequate ventilation. A spark in such an environment could
create a fire or explosion. Such environments might include: medical use of oxygen
without adequate ventilation; industrial gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline vapors;
etc.); a leak of natural gas; etc.
