The recent storms with winds that knocked down trees and power lines is a good reminder to all of us in Lakeville about the dangers of down power lines. In May, a good Samaritan died helping another person with a downed power line. He grabbed a power line that was still energized. Attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful.
Here are a few things to remember about down power lines:
- A down power line may not be a dead line.
- It can cause server injury or even death.
- If someone is injured by contact with a power line, call 911.
- Keep others away until help arrives.
