PUC would like to remind all customers:
• Downed wires should always be considered energized or “live”, and extremely dangerous
• Do not approach or drive over a downed power line and do not touch anything the power line may be in contact with
• Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about power line safety and the dangers that can be associated with power lines
