Help keep our lineworkers safe!
Keeping utility poles and electrical equipment free of signs, flags and other foreign objects helps keep the community powered and our line crews safe. It may seem harmless, but nails, staples or other fasteners in utility poles present safety hazards to workers who have to climb the poles to repair or maintain the equipment. Sharp objects in the pole can lead to lineworkers snagging or piercing holes in their protective equipment, such as the rubber gloves that are meant to insulate workers from high voltage. Hanging things from utility poles also presents dangers to the community, putting individuals at risk of making accidental contact with energized power lines. Safety is our number one priority. This is a reminder to do your part by keeping utility poles clear.
