Update from Osage Valley Electric

Please be safe out there! Car accidents are a leading cause of power outages for many rural electric cooperatives and downed lines are dangerous for all involved — including linemen and first responders.

If you have an accident involving a power pole, stay in the car until first responders tell you it's safe to exit. 

If you MUST leave (for instance, if your car is on fire), hop with your feet together away from the car, being careful not to touch any metal.
