Downed Power Lines

Follow these rules to stay safe.

Downed power lines may not always appear to be live; they may or may not throw sparks so always treat a downed line as live and extremely dangerous.

  1. If you see a downed power line, stop and stay at least the length of a bus away (33 feet or 10 metres)
  2. Call 911 and ensure nobody else approaches the line.
