Keep Power Lines and Safety in Mind This Harvest Season
Safe Electricity and Stanton County Public Power District, remind farmers that accidents related to power and electricity are possible but in most cases they can be prevented. Especially during the busy harvest season, take the following steps to decrease the chances of an electrical-related incident:
- Always use a spotter
- Use care when raising equipment
- Keep equipment 10 feet from lines
- Inspect clearance heights
- Never attempt to move a power line
- If your equipment does hit a line; Do NOT Leave the Cab. Call 911 and warn others to stay away until the utility crew arrive.
