Did you know? Over the past decade, powerline contact has accounted for nearly half of all electrical-related fatalities in Ontario. It is sad to note that all 28 deaths from powerline contact incidents could have been prevented.
In an effort to avoid future powerline tragedies, the Community Powerline Safety Alliance, an alliance bringing together like-minded organizations to establish a collaborative approach to improving powerline safety within local communities, is launching its first annual Powerline Safety Week in Ontario this year from May 13-19, 2013. Halton Hills Hydro is pleased to support this important initiative. The Community Powerline Safety Alliance urges all Ontarians to remember three life-saving Ls “look up, look out and locate” when it comes to power lines near their homes, in their communities, or where they work.
