Down Power Lines Safety Tips – Boston and New England

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Winter is upon us. This means winter storms of snow, ice and strong winds which tend to bring down power lines. ElecComm assists electric utility companies around New England with storm response for down power lines. However, as we plod through winter in the Northeast, ElecComm wants to ensure that you are prepared for potential safety hazards presented by downed electric power lines.

Severe and fatal injuries can occur by touching- or being too close to- power lines. There is no room for mistakes if you come upon a down live power line.

Downed power lines may be live. Stay at least 35 feet away. Electricity can travel through water and the ground around power lines.

  • Immediately report any downed wires to the local authorities or electric company. Remain far back.
  • Refrain from clearing snow, ice or storm debris until the power is disconnected or power lines are repaired.
  • If a power line lands on your vehicle while you are in it, stay in the vehicle until emergency responders arrive. Exiting a vehicle that has been contacted by a live power line is extremely dangerous. Similarly, do not attempt to assist someone if their vehicle is in contact with power lines.
  • If you notice the power line is on your vehicle before you enter, stay out of the vehicle, back away, and call the authorities and/or the local utility company.
