Powerline Safety Myths & Facts
MYTH: As long as my ladder isn’t metal, it can rest on the powerline.
FACT: No matter what the ladder is made of, it is a possible hazard. Be safe. Keep all ladders away from overhead powerlines.
MYTH: I’m just pruning tree limbs. I won’t be using a ladder so I don’t need to worry.
FACT: Anything that touches a powerline – a pruning tool, the tree limb or your hand – can give you a shock, burn or kill you. Better idea: call a utility arborist or your local electric utility. Have a trained utility arborist prune the tree for you.
