Keep Landscaping Away from Safety Boxes

Electrical safety boxIf your home is served by underground electric cable, you may want to plant some flowers or shrubs nearby to disguise that transformer cabinet on your property. Don't do it!

Our line crews need easy access to those cabinets to perform maintenance and repairs. Shrubs and trees and even flowerbeds can block access, and after the work is done, you'll be unhappy about the state of your plants!

Also, it's simply dangerous to plant or work close to these transformer cabinets. They contain high-voltage lines that should be avoided at all times, except by our trained personnel. So give those cabinets a wide berth – and teach your children to stay away, too. Warn them not to play around the cabinet. And never open it!
