Children Playing Outdoors

- Climbing hydro poles, towers, and fences surrounding electrical equipment is extremely dangerous. Children could fall or touch a wire and be injured or killed.
- Warn children not to climb trees near power lines.
- Don’t let children fly kites near power lines. As a precaution, make sure there is nothing metallic on the kite and check that the kite string has no wire or metal in it.
- Teach children not to play on or near pad-mounted transformers (pad-mounted transformers are short green metal cabinets on cement slabs that transform high voltage electricity to lower voltages for use in homes and businesses.
