Safety

Stay Away From Power Lines

There are many dangers associated with electricity. Even a small amount of electricity can cause tremendous damage to the human body.

Even 50 milliamps (or less) can be fatal. For perspective, it takes 1,000 milliamps to power a 100watt light bulb.

Please read the safety information found at the links below, to ensure you and your loved ones don’t find yourselves in harm’s way.

If you happen upon an electrical emergency, call 911.
