Be Safe Around Downed Power Lines

Lakeville Heating and Cooling Safety TipThe 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.

Please take a few minutes to share these warnings with your children.
