Power Outage Safety
If you are outside and power is interrupted (or lost), remember to exercise extreme caution around any downed power lines. Never touch or approach the wires or utility pole – report any down wires immediately to emergency personnel. If you do come across downed power lines, make sure to follow these steps:
1. Stay inside until help arrives.
2. Do not grab or lean against vehicles, poles or other objects in the vicinity of the power lines.
3. Take small shuffle steps away from the area with your feet and legs close together.
4. Do not touch anyone or any other object until you are well away from the scene. For more information
