Stay Away From Power Lines
Power lines can be dangerous! Consider any downed power line as extremely dangerous. Don’t ever go near a downed line and don’t let anyone else near them. Period. Report downed lines at once to Burt County Public Power District at (402) 374-2631 or 1-888-835-1620.
You should have an emergency kit ready to go. The kit should have flashlights, a radio, batteries, nonperishable food, water, medicines, and extra blankets.
Warning! If you use a standby generator during power outages, remember that improper generator hookup can create serious problems in safety and service. It is very important that your generator have a double-throw switch. This switching device is used to transfer the electric service from the power line to the generator. If it is not used, feedback from the generator voltage on power lines could endanger the lives of line crews working to restore your power.
