Being safe around electricity is always important. It truly can be a life-or-death issue with even a small amount of electricity.

To help you stay safe, we have a series of videos on topics including staying clear of downed wires, calling 811 before you dig, overhead wires and home electrical safety. Each video is less than a minute long.

It’s a short amount of time that can go a long way toward keeping you and your family safe.

To check them out, go to our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/PPLElectricUtilities. Here’s a sample of our safety videos, on a subject that’s important any time a storm passes through or a vehicle hits a pole.
