Southern California Edison Raises Safety Awareness About the Dangers of Power Lines

ROSEMEAD, Calif., March 25, 2015 — Downed power lines are caused by many things, including cars crashing into power poles, high or Santa Ana winds, rainstorms and even metallic balloons. Coming in contact with a power line can cause serious personal injuries and even death.

With this in mind, Southern California Edison launched a territory-wide campaign to educate its customers about the dangers of power lines. The utility is reaffirming its commitment to educate the public about power-line safety by encouraging customers to “Stay Aware. Stay Safe.”

SCE recommends the following electrical safety tips to stay safe around power lines:

·       When doing yard work or outdoor chores, remember to look up and look out for power lines. 

·       Maintain at least 10 feet of clearance around power lines when using pruners, ladder, pool skimmers or any other tool and equipment you use above your head.

·       Avoid using metal ladders as they conduct electricity. Use wooden or fiberglass ladders instead.

·       Remind children to stay far away from trees that are growing into – or near – power lines and not to fly kites near power lines

·       Don’t try to prune trees growing into or near power lines. Report them to Southern California Edison at 1-800-655-4555.

·       Never approach or touch a downed power line or anything in contact with them. Call 911 immediately and tell the operator it’s an electrical emergency.

“Whether they’re overhead or downed, safety awareness around power lines is absolutely crucial for our customers,” said James Mackenzie, SCE principal manager of Corporate Safety Programs. “We want our customers to be informed and aware so they can always make the right decisions around power lines.”
