Electrical Safety For Kids

Kid flying kite on grassy hill.Electricity is dangerous! Teach your kids the steps to take to remain safe:

  • Stay away from substation fences, utility poles, and electrical equipment.
  • Electricity and water don’t mix. Never touch anything electrical when you are wet or touching water.
  • Never climb a tree when there are electrical wires near it.
  • Fly kites in open fields – not near overhead power lines. If your kite gets caught in a power line, don’t try to get it untangled. Call us at (503) 397-1844.
  • Don’t fly drones near power lines.
