Hunting safety: Leave the pole alone

Please help us keep our linemen and our community safe! Don’t place deer stands on utility poles or use the poles to support equipment used in hunting activities.

These attachments put line crews at risk. Anyone illegally placing these items on poles comes dangerously close to energized power lines with thousands of volts of energy pulsing overhead. Keep all structures at least 10 feet away from utility poles.

Fixtures not belonging to the cooperative or another utility will be removed by co-op line personnel. The co-op is not responsible for any losses if an item is damaged or destroyed during removal.
