Stay Safe Around Power Substations

When playing outdoors, keep a safe distance from power lines, substations and other equipment used to send electricity to homes and businesses.

Keep these tips in mind to stay safe around power substations.

  • Teach children to avoid climbing fences around power substations. 
  • Contact us at 1-800-462-3691 if you see a power substation fence or transformer equipment that's been damaged. 
  • Keep drones and kites from flying near substations and power lines.
  • Avoid releasing metallic balloons near substations, which can cause power outages if they contact power lines.
