Aerial Equipment Contact: No Imminent Danger
If your aerial equipment comes into contact with a power line and there is no fire or other imminent danger, take the following steps:
- Stay on the vehicle.
- Call the utility company.
- Warn others away. People on the ground are in the greatest danger when equipment hits a line.
- Move the equipment away from the line if it is safe to do so.
- If you cannot safely move the equipment, stay put until the line is de-energized.
