Fly kites, balloons, and model airplanes in open areas, far from overhead electrical lines.
Never climb utility poles. Never throw things or shoot at power lines, poles, or insulators
Keep ladders away from overhead lines. If you use a straight ladder, follow the four-to-one rule: Place the ladder base one foot away from the object it leans on for every four feet of height to the ladders resting point.
Install or remove an antenna in dry weather only. Maintain a distance of at least twice the antenna’s length between it and the power line.
While snowmobiling watch for utility poles, guy wires, fences, underground cable junction boxes and right-of-way.
Remember that dangers are not easy to see from a speeding snowmobile, especially in the dark.
Stay away from downed power lines. Never try to remove a downed line yourself. Immediately contact your local utility or 911.
