Make the safe call this summer
Summer weather can be extreme, just like winter weather. High temperatures and strong winds can mean conditions that have the potential to damage property and powerlines.
If you do see a damaged or fallen powerline, make sure you stay clear and make the safe call to our 24/7 emergency number - 13 13 51.
Make the safe call every day
Find out more about how to keep yourself safe when you're at home, at work and outside. Also make sure you know about safe distances between trees and powerlines and what to do if you witness an electrical accident.
Every year a large number of serious electrical accidents happen in the home but many of them can be avoided. There are a number of simple things that you can do to protect your family and yourself.
Throughout the year, Western Australia experiences high winds, lightning strikes and heavy rain. This wild weather can cause trees and branches to fall onto and bring down powerlines. If you see a fallen powerline, Make the Safe Call.
Trees that interfere with powerlines are a safety risk. They can disrupt the power supply, cause bushfires and serious accidents. It's up to all of us to make sure that trees stay clear of powerlines all year round.
