Keep Power Poles Clear

March 2023

Keep power poles clear, keep our linemen safe

Posted items on power poles are more than just an eyesore; they can be dangerous — even life-threatening — to our linemen. SVEC asks everyone to help keep poles clear.

Linemen’s clamped safety boots can snag on staples and nails left in poles long after signs are gone.

Foreign objects can injure linemen or tear protective clothing, the first line of defense from electric shock.

Posted materials can distract drivers and degrade the quality and stability of wooden poles.

If you see poles or guy wires that have been disrupted in some way, please call a SVEC member services representative at (800) 447-4905.
