endnotes Moving Large Equipment? Call KEC first.


Children aren’t the only ones who need to play it safe around electric lines. Farmers and others moving grain bins and large equipment should be sure their load will clear an overhead line before trying to drive under it.


Kiamichi Electric Cooperative safety experts have this advice for anyone preparing to move large objects:


• Map your course. Drive the route you'll travel and note the location of all overhead power lines—even the ones that look like they’re too high to cause a problem.


• Choose a road less traveled. Making the move is risky enough when just the driver and a helper are involved. Don’t put others at risk if you don’t have to.


• Call Kiamichi Electric and any other electric utilities with lines you might pass under. The utility can measure your load — including the bed it’s lying on — and then measure the distance from the ground to the lowest hanging wire. Never measure the line clearance yourself; getting close enough for an accurate measurement puts you at risk of electrocution.


• Don’t drive under the line until the utilit says it’s safe.


• Never touch any line with your hands or with any object --even a wooden one. Most utility lines are uninsulated and will burn or shock anyone who comes in contact with them.


• Abide by safet regulations. Once you get a grain bin to its new home, remember that the National Electrical Safety Code requires it to be located at least 18 feet from overhead lines. Better yet, contact KEC's engineering department before your move for advice on safely locating your grain bin. If a grain bin is not located a safe distance from power lines, KEC may be unable to provide service. Please call 800-888-2731.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY Tip of the Month


Fall is here, and that means colder months will be here before we know it. Is your home prepared for the drafts that may enter? Tight-fitting insulating drapes or shades are a perfect way to keep the heat in and the cold out.
