Safety Advisory: Keep a safe distance from transmission lines

May 17th, 2019

As you head into the long weekend, it’s important to ensure you follow safe practices near all transmission lines and electrical facilities. While transmission line right-of ways may appear to be an ideal trail for outdoor activities and recreational vehicles, it’s best to avoid given the hazards that can often be hidden.

For your safety, always use caution when travelling near transmission lines and electrical facilities, and be aware of your surroundings.

Be safe near transmission lines, especially around:

• guy wires that are supporting towers

• concrete barriers that have been placed near the base of towers

• sharp sticks that may be protruding in areas that have been mulched

• uneven terrain
