Electric safety tips
- During a storm:
- Always stay at least 25 feet away from downed power lines and don’t touch anything they are in contact with such as fences- always consider them live and dangerous.
- Never cross yellow caution tape, which may indicate there is a downed power line in the area.
- After a storm:
- Stay out of flooded/damp basements or other areas if water is in contact with outlets, a furnace or any electrically operated appliance. Most water or moisture conducts electricity, and contact may cause a serious or fatal injury.
- Be sure to supervise children and pets outside following a storm.
- Never operate a generator in your home, garage or other enclosed building, as generators emit carbon monoxide. Place generators in a dry, outside location.
Natural gas safety tips
- How to detect a gas leak:
- Smell: The most obvious sign of a natural gas leak is the smell. We add a harmless substance to natural gas, so it stinks like rotten eggs, making it easier to detect.
- Sight: Look for dead or discolored vegetation in an otherwise green area. Soil may be abnormally dry or hardened. In wet or flooded areas, there may be continuous bubbling.
- Sound: Gas leaks often emit a blowing or hissing sound.
- Other signs: If a leak has been ignited, there will be flames. In certain cases, gas leaks will blow dust from a hole in the ground.
- If you suspect a gas leak leave the area immediately, call 911 and then contact DTE at 800.947.5000.
- Install carbon monoxide detectors in your home’s bedrooms, hallways and living spaces.
- If you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning immediately leave the area to get fresh air, seek medical assistance and then call 911.
- Always call MISS DIG at 811 three business days before beginning a digging project like planting or installing a new mailbox, patio, pool fence, etc., and more.
