Keep ladders, antennas, long-handled equipment and other conductive objects away from power lines.
Never use electric tools near water or in the rain.
Don't fly kites near electric lines. If kite string gets caught in a power line, leave it alone; don't try to remove the string from the line. Instead, call Superior Water Light and Power for assistance.
Never climb a utility pole or a tree that is near electric wires.
Never enter a substation or fenced enclosure that surrounds electrical equipment. The fenced-off area is extremely dangerous.
