Utility Poles Are Not Bulletin Boards


Help us keep our lineworkers safe.

Electric cooperative workers find all kinds of no-nos on utility poles, such as yard sale signs, basketball hoops, deer stands, satellite dishes, lights and birdhouses.

These obstructions are dangerous for employees. Unwelcome clutter on utility poles can compromise line -workers’ safety equipment, leaving them vulnerable to electrocution.

Anyone posting items on utility poles also is at risk of exposure to thousands of volts of electricity pulsing overhead. Always stay at least 10 feet away from utility lines.

Think before you post that sign!

Bandera Electric Cooperative encourages you to always practice safety.
