Overhead line safety precautions

Please remember the following safety guidelines when working near overhead power lines:
-Keep a safe distance between yourself and power lines. Ten feet is generally considered the minimum safe distance.
-Before you begin working, check carefully for overhead power lines in the area you will be working. Don't assume that wires are telephone or cable lines: check with your electric utility for advice.
- If you need to cut a tree branch, be sure that it won't fall into power lines. Should a branch fall into lines, call at (IRAN) 121 to remove it.
