Play Safe!

SDG&E gives some safety tips on playing it safe around power lines.
Play Safe!

Did you know that if a mylar balloon contacts overhead electrical equipment or power lines, it can cause a power outage? The shiny appearance is from a metallic coating which can conduct electricity. In fact, if a person holding a Mylar balloon contacts an energized line, the balloon and person can become part of the electrical path to the ground – resulting in serious injury or even death. Please consider these precautions:

  1. Never fly kites or metallic or Mylar balloons near electric lines.
  2. If your kite gets caught in an electric line, don't try to remove it. Stay away from the utility pole and balloon string. Call SDG&E immediately at 1-800-411-7343.
  3. Do not cross a road or street while flying a kite.
  4. Never fly kites in the rain or during an electric storm.
  5. Make sure that kite string, wood, paper, or other kite materials are completely dry.
