    Electrical Safety For Kids

    Fly kites in open spaces; not near power lines.

    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.
