What should I do if I see a downed or low hanging wire?
Call 9-1-1. Any low or downed wire should be treated as a live - energized electrical wire. In other words, STAY WELL AWAY and warn others to stay away as well! Call 9-1-1. Allow us to investigate and determine if it is an electrical wire or possibly a phone or cable TV wire. But, never make the determination yourself. This situation becomes more acute in stormy weather when overhead lines can come loose or break.
