More Safety Tips

Look Up!

Please pay attention to the location of all overhead power lines. FOLLOW THE 10-FOOT RULE! Always keep yourself and anything you're handling at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines.

Make sure to check for power lines in or near trees before pruning branches. Don't use pruning tools or ladders near power lines. Never try to remove a branch that is tangled or lying across a power line. Instead, call us at 1-888-221-7070 – we'll be happy to remove it for you.

Never stand an irrigation pipe on end near a power line

Call before you dig.

Call 811 at least 48 hours before you dig to put in fence posts, plant trees or install sprinkler systems.

Water and electricity don’t mix.

Use electric power tools only in dry weather. And do not spray water on power lines, equipment or structures.

Stay away to stay safe

Never sit on, play on, dig near or pry open pad-mounted transformers (four-foot-tall, green, metal boxes most often found in neighborhoods and parks). If you find one that has been unlocked or damaged, please call us immediately at 1-888-221-7070.
