Outdoor Safety

Work safe and play safe outdoors

Here are some helpful tips to keep you and your family safe during the warm weather months.

  • Use only electric equipment designed for outdoor use
  • Keep ladders, kites, and TV antennas/dishes away from power lines
  • Make sure all outdoor outlets are protected by ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs)
  • Use cords marked for outdoor use and rated for your power tool's needs
  • Never trim trees near power lines; call us first at (210) 353-2222 to request a temporary disconnect of your power if working near lines on your property
  • Use only a dry fiberglass or wooden ladder––never a metal ladder ––when working near electrical wires or equipment
  • Call before you dig! Locate underground power and gas lines by using the National One Call System at 811. It’s the law!
  • Never place a swimming pool or other structure under the power line leading to your house
  • Never climb power poles, transmission towers, or fences around substations
  • Teach children to stay clear of all electrical and natural gas installations, including the green transformer boxes
  • If you see a downed power line, call CPS Energy immediately at (210) 353-4357 (HELP)
