Downed Power Lines

  • If you see a downed power line, don't touch it! Call 911 immediately and then call us toll free at 1-877-508-5088. Keep everyone, including pets, out of the area. You cannot look at a downed line and determine if it's "live."

  • Do not touch a person if a power line is touching them. Immediately call 911.

  • If a power line falls across your vehicle, stay in the car and wait for emergency personnel to cut the power. If your vehicle is on fire and you are in imminent danger and you must get out of the vehicle, JUMP – with both feet together – as far from the car as possible. If a part of your body touches the car and the ground at the same time, you could be electrocuted.
