November is National Child Safety and Protection Month

November is National Child Safety and Protection Month

November 3, 2021 – November is National Child Safety and Protection Month. This month is dedicated to identifying potential dangers to children and taking steps to protect our children against those dangers. Now is the perfect time to educate children on the importance of electrical safety. It is also a great time to remind ourselves of the electrical hazards that surround us on a daily basis. LCEC reminds people of all ages to:

  • Never climb trees near power lines.
  • Kites and model airplanes should be flown only during good weather conditions in large open areas. Kites should never be flown near overhead power lines or other electrical equipment, such as substations. Never climb a tree near power lines to retrieve a kite.
  • Never climb a utility pole or tower.
  • Don’t play on or around pad-mounted electrical equipment (a.k.a. the big green metal boxes often found in neighborhoods).
  • Avoid going near an electric substation.
  • If thunder roars (or lightening is present), go indoors immediately.
  • Stay away from downed power lines. If you see a downed line, call your electric provider immediately. LCEC customers should call 239-656-2300.
