As temperatures drop and winter storms blow through, make sure you are aware of your surroundings whenever venturing outside.
Heavy winds, snowfall, and ice are more then capable of bringing down utility poles and power lines.
If you encounter a downed line, be sure to stay at least 35 feet back, that is about 3 car lengths.
Do not touch the power line or anything in contact with the line.
If others are around, warn them to stay away, then call 911.
And remember, consider all downed lines live and dangerous.
