TLC Caught In A Storm

Don’t Take Any Chances with Your Safety. Don’t Get Caught in a Storm.

On a hot, summer day Stephen Wald, his two boys and their friend found themselves caught in a terrifying thunderstorm. They ended up only seconds away from being in an accident with an overhead power line that was brought down by the force of the storm.

They know the situation could have ended tragically and are so thankful that it didn’t. They are working with Safe Electricity’s “Teach Learn Care TLC” campaign to share their experience to help keep others safe.

Safe Electricity wants you to know how to stay safe and not get caught in a storm:

  • Check weather forecasts so you plan to stay inside when a storm threatens.
  • If you are outside, seek safe shelter in an enclosed building or vehicle.
  • If you see a downed power line, stay far away, instruct others to do the same, and call 911 and the utility immediately.
