Stay Back. Stay Safe.
If you see a downed power line, always assume it’s energized and dangerous. Avoid going near it or anything in contact with the power line.
Downed power lines can energize the ground up to 35 feet away – so keep your distance.
If you see a downed line, call 911 to report it.
Never drive over a downed line or through water that’s touching the line.
Never try to move a downed power line, even if you think the line is de-energized or if you’re using a non-conductive item – this will not prevent injury or death.
