Power Line Safety

POWER LINE SAFETY

Accidentally contacting a power line can be dangerous and in some cases, even deadly. Your Touchstone Energy cooperative wants to help our members stay safe around power lines.

Keep a safe distance

Whether you are playing outdoors with your children or working on landscaping projects, keep a safe distance from power lines and other equipment your co-op uses to get electricity to your home.

Always remember to:

  • Stay away from power lines, meters, transformers and electrical boxes.

  • Don’t climb trees near power lines.

  • Never fly kits, remote control airplanes or balloons near power lines.

  • If you get something stuck in a power line, call your Touchstone Energy co-op to get it.

  • Keep a safe distance from overhead power lines when working with ladders or installing objects such as antennas.

  • Never touch or go near a downed power line.

  • Don’t touch anything that may be touching a downed wire, such as a car.

  • Keep children and pets away.
