Avoid Pole Attachments!

With fall hunting season on the horizon, we'd like to remind our members that placing blinds, stands - anything - on utility poles is unsafe and illegal. Safety issues caused by unapproved pole attachments place the lives of lineworkers and the public in peril. It may seem innocent, but a small nail partially driven into a pole can pierce a lineworker's glove, stripping away critical protection from high-voltage electricity. Unauthorized pole attachments violate the National Electric Safety Code. With this danger in mind, it is a crime to attach any unapproved item to a utility pole. Please help us keep our linemen - and our community - safe. Remove any unauthorized items attached to utility poles. Fixtures not belonging to the cooperative or another utility will be removed; the co-op is not responsible for any losses if an item is damaged or destroyed during removal.
