Play safe outside

  1. 1. Danger - High Voltage sign When playing outside, stay away from all electrical equipment, including meters, pad mount transformer (usually a large green metal box) in your yard, poles and support wires, substations, etc.
  2. Obey the signs: DANGER – HIGH VOLTAGE – STAY AWAY!
  3. Play inside during a thunderstorm. Lightning is nature’s electricity and can be deadly!
  4. NEVER – EVER – go near power lines laid on the ground.
  5. If you climb trees or build a tree house, do so away from any trees near power lines.
  6. Fly a kite in an open space – away from power lines. If your kite does drift toward a power line, let go of the string – FAST!
