If you encounter a downed power line, move a safe distance away and always assume that it is energized. While some energized wires spark and snap, others may not appear dangerous.
Call 811 at least two full business days before you start any digging project. Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, call 811 before each job.
Around electrical infrastructure of all kinds, our message to you is simple: for your own safety, never touch power lines, climb on power poles, play on transformers, or tamper with equipment in any other way
Play it safe. Educate your children about electrical safety and make them aware of overhead power lines. If your kids plan to fly a kite, make sure they're in an open field away from electrical lines.
We've teamed up with local teachers in our service area to provide engaging electrical safety materials to help teach children about electricity - and more importantly - how to be safe around electricity.
