Here are some important safety tips you can’t afford to leave behind when you work outdoors:
- Property owners should never attempt to trim or remove tree limbs near power lines. If you are concerned about a tree that may be too close to a power line, contact NPPD at 1-877-275-6773, or your local electric utility.
- When using a ladder or pruning tool, look up and look out for overhead power lines.
- Stay away from trees with overhead power lines running through them.
- Never touch a tree that is in contact with a power line.
Call Before You Dig
Dial 811, the toll-free number of the Diggers Hotline. The service will contact member utilities who will mark the location of underground facilities at no charge.
