Electrical Safety Tip of the Week: Stay smart around overhead lines

May is National Electrical Safety Month

Overhead electrical lines are helpful because they provide
power to our homes and businesses. But they can be harmful
to you if you contact them.

A few things for kids to remember:

• Never fly kites near utility lines. If your kite is about to touch a line, let go to avoid getting shocked.
• Don’t climb trees that have power lines near them.
• Never try to damage electrical equipment. Throwing objects at overhead wires can cause a power outage and put other people at risk.
