Don't Go Out on a Limb


Safety for you and your children is a top priority at your electric co-op. Kids don’t always know—or remember—what can be dangerous, so it’s up to all of us to watch out for them. Safety rules for power lines:

Don’t plant trees or install tall playground equipment under or near power lines.
Don’t build treehouses in trees near electric lines.
Don’t allow children to climb trees near power lines.
Teach your children to always look up to check for power lines before climbing trees or any tall objects.
Keep children away from ladders and equipment that may be near power lines.
And the No. 1 safety rule for everyone to remember:
Never touch a power line or anything that’s touching a power line. Look up and live!

Bandera Electric Cooperative encourages you to always practice safety.
