Consumers Energy Downed Powerlines
Affected Areas: Allegan County, Kent County, Muskegon County, Ottawa County
If You See A Downed Or Sagging Wire:
Don’t take chances!
Even though that sagging wire or broken wire on the ground isn’t sparking, it can still be “live” with a deadly amount of electricity. Keep people and pets at least 25 feet away. Be careful not to come in contact with anything the wire is touching – especially standing water or metal objects like fences. Even tree limbs can conduct a dangerous amount of voltage!
Remember the rule: Stay Away and Stay Alive.
If a wire is crossing a road or driveway, avoid the area and keep others away. Do not attempt to move the wire.
Then, contact Consumers Energy at 1-800-477-5050 or your local law enforcement agency. When you call, be prepared to provide the specific address or location so our repair crew can get there as quickly as possible.
