What Do I Do If I See A Downed Powerline?

Downed powerlines are very dangerous. If you spot a downed powerline, keep at least 10 metres away, (the length of a school bus) even if it does not appear to be live. 

Call us at 519-886-5090 if you see a downed powerline and stay safe!

Learn what to do if you see a downed powerline by visiting www.wnhydro.com/downedlines.

Email us at schoolelectricalsafety@wnhydro.com if you have any questions. Good luck!
