Utility pole safety
Sign nailed on utility pole

Utility poles are not bulletin boards or support for satellite dishes and bird houses. These obstacles create a dangerous environment for line workers. Clay Electric Co-operative line crews climb utility poles at all hours of the day and night, in the worst of conditions. Anything attached to utility poles can create serious hazards for our line personnel.

Please help us keep our linemen and our community safe. Don’t attach any of these unauthorized and dangerous items to utility poles.
