Your Electric Utility Company
By Dave Rongey
Summary: Your electric utility company is there to keep your power on and and keep you safe.
Safety First: In the U.S.A. Call 911 to Report Downed Power Lines
Your safety is our First Concern
If you see a downed electrical power line, assume it is energized and keep yourself and others away. Call 911 immediately to report the location of the downed line then call your local Electric Utility Company 24-Hour Emergency and Customer Service Line. During and after a storm, please keep away from flooded areas and downed trees, as these areas could be hiding an energized power line.
