Outdoor electrical safety tips for kids

Outdoor electrical safety tips for kids

Summer is the perfect time to get out and enjoy the outdoors, but it is important for parents to remind kids of the following outdoor electric safety rules:

• Kids should keep an eye out for overhead power lines and electrical equipment, and never climb on or play near either.
• Avoid climbing trees near power lines. Even if a tree doesn’t seem to be touching a power line but is near one, that branch could make contact if more weight is added to a branch.
• Only fly kites and remote-controlled airplanes in large open areas far away from power lines. If your kite happens to get stuck in a tree near power lines, do not climb it to free your kite. Call your electric utility for help. If you are an LCEC customer, please call 239-656-2300. It is also important to never fly a kite when a thunderstorm is looming.
• Never, ever climb a utility pole or tower. Electricity is carried through utility poles and towers and has the potential to kill.
• Steer clear of electric substations which house dangerous, high-voltage equipment. If a pet or toy makes it inside of a substation, call you utility provider immediately.
• Water and electricity do not mix!!
