Electricity is a powerful resource that can be used for many benefits in the home and outside the home. Electricity can be very dangerous if used improperly or not given the proper respect. If anyone comes in contact with electric current there is no warning and no time to react. Electricity travels at the speed of light (186,000 miles/sec.).
If there is a need to work outside after a storm be sure to look for down power lines under fallen trees, and around chain link fences.
If there are downed power lines, stay away from them and call AMLP (765) 648-6484 immediately.
