Summer Safety Tips for Kids

Summer Safety Tips for Kids

Summer is a time when kids spend more time enjoying the outdoors, making it an important time to remind them about staying safe around electricity. Use the tips below to talk with your tots about electric dangers:

• Never fly a kite when it is rainy or anywhere near overhead power lines.
• If you see a power line on the ground, stay away and immediately tell an adult to call their power company. If the line is within LCEC service territory, please call 239-656-2300.
• Avoid climbing trees near power lines or power poles. Never, ever climb a power pole!
• Never play near pad mounted transformers which are green metal boxes that contain the above ground portion of underground electrical wiring.
• Do not put electronics near water. Water and electricity do not mix!
• If “thunder roars, go indoors.”

These are just few reminders for your kids as they explore the outdoors this summer! For more safety tips, visit Happy summer, kids!
