After The Storm - Safety is # 1

Nothing is normal after a storm.

Be aware of your surroundings by looking up, down, around, and out when moving around storm damage.

You should be aware of the many safety hazards that occur following a destructive storm or natural disaster. We've compiled a few things related to electricity that you should be aware of:

What to Do When You Encounter a Downed Powerline

May is recognized as National Electrical Safety Month, but the mission of ensuring our membership’s safety is a daily responsibility at MTEMC. Educating our members on the dangers associated with energized electrical lines and equipment is important. For example, do you know what to do when a power line is brought down due to a car accident? This can be a very dangerous situation, so please take a look.

Take time to be safe around electricity

In the position I am honored to serve, few things weigh on my mind as heavily as safety – safety for our members and for our employees. Electricity is a necessity we’re privileged to provide you…but it can be life changing in more ways than one.

May is National Electrical Safety Month and Middle Tennessee Electric takes seriously its commitment to home, workplace and public safety. The welfare of our members and employees always comes first.

On the Road for Children’s Safety

MTEMC has more than 12,000 miles of electric line in four counties, so we make it a priority to educate the communities we serve about power line safety, especially children. That’s why we use a high-voltage electrical safety demonstration table at local schools and community events. We believe children, especially, need to learn about electric safety.
