Power Outage Is Your Fault


For safety sake, please report it.


A


ccidents happen and sometimes they cause power outages. A perfect example occurred in September when lights went out near Antlers. While no one reported an accident, when Choctaw Electric crews located the source of the outage, the line appeared to have been damaged by some type of farm machinery.


Farmers, ranchers, loggers, and anyone operating large equipment should be aware of the location of power lines at all times. Maintaining ten feet or more between you and the power line is a wise precaution that aims to protect you from bodily harm and everyone else in your area from a power blackout.


Most importantly, if you damage CEC lines while mowing doing some type of other work, please let your co-op know immediately, or notify local authorities.


Accidental damage to co-op lines is not a crime. You will not be fined or punished in any way; however, you might be reminded of proper safety precautions around power lines.


Far worse is to flee the scene, leaving friends and neighbors in the dark—and a deadly hot line waiting for a unwitting victim.


Be a good neighbor: Please report any dangerous electrical situations you happen across by calling Choctaw Electric at 800-870-6486.
