Power Outage Safety

Power Outage Safety

Stay away from all Downed Power Lines and call us right away!

Report a downed power line at:

•    360-426-8255 (Shelton)
•    360-275-2833 (Belfair)
•    360-861-4247 (Elma)
•    911

NEVER touch downed lines, go near them, or try to pull away anything under them. Treat all downed lines with extreme caution, and always assume electric wires are energized.

Help us by keeping others away from the lines until our linemen arrive on the scene.

If a line falls onto your car…STAY IN THE CAR. If you have a cell phone, call 911 and we’ll get there as soon as we can. Your car’s tires can act as an insulator, keeping you from being electrocuted. Even one foot from your car to the energized ground can kill.
