Power line safety: How to stay safe around overhead power lines
Being around power transmission lines comes with certain risks. In fact, accidentally contacting one can be dangerous, and in some cases, even deadly. Your local electric cooperative wants to help members stay safe around power lines. As a result, we’ve provided you with a list of things you can do to stay safe.
First and foremost, keep a safe distance from power lines
Whether you are playing outdoors with your children or working on landscaping projects, keep a safe distance from power lines and other equipment your co-op uses to get electricity to your home.
At minimum, stay 10 feet away from transmission power lines. If they are considered “high voltage”, you should stay at least 25 feet away.
