Public Notices:

Outside Your Home

  • Before using an extension cord outside or in a wet area, confirm that the cord is rated for outdoor use and make sure the cord is grounded.
  • Never swing or climb on the wires that support utility poles. Avoid running into them with yard equipment or vehicles.
  • Never touch a wire lying on the ground as it is virtually impossible to tell whether or not it is live, or energised. Report downed wires to BELCO immediately.
  • Do not use lightweight extension cords, intended for indoor use, outdoors. Indoor cords are not designed for use in damp areas.
  • Take care not to cut the power cord when working with electrically powered cutting tools outdoors. These include lawn mowers, hedge clippers, chain saws and trimmers.
  • Avoid damp or wet areas when using electrical power tools outdoors.
  • Exercise caution when using ladders, painting, pruning or cleaning near a service drop. (A service drop is where the wiring comes into a house or building at the meter.) Weatherproofing on the overhead wiring is not insulation. This covering can become brittle and cracked, exposing you to electrical contact.
  • Use extreme caution around swimming pools. Don't use electrical appliances or route electrical cords near pools
