Here are six lessons that can save a child’s life:


1. Assume all utility lines are energized and can injure or kill someone who touches them. Even if the line appears to belong to the cable or phone company, a child is unlikely to be sure. Tell your kids not to touch any kind of fallen line; not with any part of their body or with a toy or stick.


2. Climbing trees is an activity best enjoyed when an adult is nearby to supervise. Still, warn your child not to climb a tree that is near an electrical power line—even if the line isn’t touching the tree.

4. Insist that children stay away from transformer boxes, substations, transmission towers and all electrical


equipment. Forbid them from climbing utility poles or entering a substation— no matter who dares them to ignore the “do not enter” sign.


5. Teach children of all ages how to read signs that say “danger,” “high voltage,” and “keep out” and to know what they mean.


6. Write down the Kiamichi Electric Cooperative telephone number for each of your children. Tell them to call for help if they spot a downed wire or see another child playing too close to a line or other potentially “live” equipment. If they can't locate the co-op number, tell them to call 911 immediately. The Kiamichi Electric Cooperative number is 800-888-2731.
