Stay Away. Stay Safe.

Electrical sites and equipment are surrounded by chain-link fences for a reason—those sites are dangerous and pose serious risks to your health and safety.

Unfortunately, sometimes electrical sites are accessed by unauthorized individuals who steal copper ground wire. Removing the ground wire creates an extremely dangerous situation for both the thieves as well as our employees who come to work on those sites.

We want people to be safe – stay away from electrical sites and equipment that could hurt or even kill you. Only people who have been properly trained and who are wearing the right safety equipment are allowed to access electrical sites.

Even if you think you are familiar with or experienced in electrical equipment, do not enter electrical sites unless you are permitted to do so. You are putting yourself and others at significant risk.

We all have a role to play in keeping ourselves and others safe.

Please stay away from electrical sites and equipment and help us ensure that everyone goes home safely at the end of the day.
