The following valuable tips will help you keep your home and family safe around the potential dangers of electricity:
Be sure your generator is properly installed by a licensed electrician to prevent it from back feeding into our system, endangering linemen, and potentially causing a fire.
Stay away from transformers. If locks are missing or broken, notify OG&E immediately.
Leave 1 ½ foot clearance around a transformer if landscaping.
Don’t overload outlets.
Stay away from substations. If something like a ball goes over the fence, call OG&E for assistance.
Water and electricity don’t mix.
Look up before you climb and down before you dig. Power lines are located overhead and underground.
- Stay away from power lines and anything they are touching. They are bare wires and not insulated. Downed power lines may appear to be harmless but could be live.
