Your Community - Electrical Safety
North Western Electric reminds everyone to exercise extreme caution when working near or around power lines.
ALWAYS call OUPS (Ohio Utilities Protection Service) before you dig. It's the law!

If you currently own or are thinking about purchasing a generator for your home, please read to learn about generator safety. The FEMA website offers more information on generator safety.
Television antennas are becoming a thing of the past, but they still exist. It is important to operate with caution when working with antennas. Never install antennas near power lines. They should be installed twice the height of the antenna away from power lines. When dismantling an antenna, do not touch any electrical wire. You and those around you could be killed by the contact. If you have more questions regarding antenna safety, please call the office.
