Steer clear of fallen power lines
You canít tell by looking at a fallen power line if itís ďliveĒ or not. So assume it is live Ė and get away from it.
Donít touch it. Donít touch anything or anybody else whoís touching it. Donít drive your car near it. Donít step in water near it. Just get away Ė quickly.
Even if a power line is not on the ground, stay away from it. Donít even stand under a power line or under a tree thatís near one. Storm damage to tree limbs and power lines isnít always visible, yet they could fall later Ė when youíre not expecting it.
