Power Lines

Power lines can be knocked down any number of ways, from winds, ice storms, accidents, etc. Power lines carry electricity strong enough to seriously injure and kill, even if they're not moving, humming, or sparking. Stay away from downed lines. Follow these rules:

If you're doing elevated work, whether it be working on antennas, ladders, or trimming trees, make sure you stay clear of overhead lines. You could be seriously injured or killed if your equipment touches them.
