Stay away from downed power lines

The Lebanon City Electric Department is constantly working to improve electric infrastructure to protect the system. In the winter, potential ice buildup and wind can bring down a power line which is a dangerous situation. Electric Department Supervisor Travis Long reminds everyone when they see a line down do not approach..

Long said if you see a downed power line, you should not get any closer than 10 feet in any direction, and always assume that the line is energized.
