Downed Power Lines
Follow these rules to stay safe.
Always treat a downed power line as live and extremely dangerous. Downed power lines may not always appear to be live; they may or may not throw sparks.
- If you see a downed power line, stay at least 10 meters or 33 feet away (the length of a bus).
- Call 911 immediately
- Report the downed wire to NB Power at 1-800-663-6272.
