Padmount transformers – the “green box”
<<< Don’t do this!!
Never dig near, sit on, reach into, move or allow kids to play around a padmount transformer. They carry a deadly amount of electricity! Plant away from the green box and always call 811 BEFORE you dig!
Downed power lines
Stay FAR away from power lines! >>>
Consider all downed lines energized and dangerous! Energized power lines on the ground can send electrical current through the ground for 40 feet or more. Never get close enough to a downed line to inspect it. If you see a downed line, call your power provider. If it is posing immediate danger to the public, call 911.
