Trees and Power Line Safety

At FPL, safety is a cornerstone of our commitment to customers and employees. We urge you to stay safe and stay far away from power lines at all times.

Ladders and power lines don't mix

If you decide to work outside, look up and note the location of power lines before you begin. Careful avoidance of power lines is extremely important during yard work, especially when using tools, ladders, poles or pruning saws. Be sure that ladders or scaffolds are far enough away so that you – and the ends of the tools you’re using – don’t come within 10 feet of power lines.

FPL Power Line Safety

You can be seriously hurt or killed if the object you are holding contacts a power line. Even nonmetallic ladders and equipment can conduct electricity. You must keep at least 10 feet away from any power line, from the end or tip of your own extended reach and including the end or tip of any object you are holding or carrying. (Please note that you must allow even greater distance for safety near higher voltage lines such as transmission lines.)
