Be Aware of Downed Power Lines after Storms

Be alert to the possibility of hidden downed power lines in the aftermath of a storm. Just because a power line is down doesn’t mean it is no longer carrying electricity. It could be electrifying objects around it.

"The Safe Electricity editorial calendar, along with their suggested articles and news releases, are valuable tools that I follow to create short, informative sidebars for our website. I change them out each month according to the month and time of year. In addition, I plan to incorporate their suggested social media posts when we go live on our FaceBook page in the fall."
