Important safety reminder when burning
When spring rolls around, members begin to clear weeds and debris. Burning fields and ditches is customary for our service area. Please be aware that burning or scorching a pole can compromise its strength and safety. This type of pole damage may become a danger or cause an outage. If poles are burnt and energized lines are left on or near the ground, this can cause serious injuries or even death if a person comes in contact with the energized line.
Please report any pole or wire damage to Clay County Electric immediately.
