On the Road for Children’s Safety

MTEMC has more than 12,000 miles of electric line in four counties, so we make it a priority to educate the communities we serve about power line safety, especially children. That’s why we use a high-voltage electrical safety demonstration table at local schools and community events. We believe children, especially, need to learn about electric safety.

This could prove to be fatal for both responders and victims. A downed power line can cause an injury or fatality for up to 30 feet around the point of contact depending on various factors.

Here are 7 things you should do if you are the first person to the scene of a vehicle crash that has hit or is under a power line.
