Let’s go visit Linny’s friends
- Electricity can get to you through metal, liquid, or just about anything that’s wet. It can also get to other people through you!
- Make sure your parents check for worn places in the wires and extension cords in your home. Ask them what other things in your house use electricity and then ask them to check those things, too.
- Keep ladders, kites and TV antennas away from power lines.
- If you see a power line on the ground, don’t touch it! Walk the other way and call the electric company.
- Never climb power poles.
- Never fly kites near power lines.
- If a power line hits your car, stay inside unless it catches fire. If you have to get out, be sure to jump out the door without touching anything made of metal. After you’re outside, don’t touch the car or the wire. Get away and ask for help.
- When you hear thunder or see lighting, go inside. Stay away from trees.
- Never, ever get into the tub or shower with anything that uses electricity.
