Increased Public Safety
Carroll Electric will maintain mandated tree to power line clearances within and along power line easements to prevent life-threatening accidents. These clearances also minimize fire hazards caused by energized power lines touching overgrown vegetation.
An Integrated Vegetation Management Program, including the use of herbicides, reduces employee working hazards that are inherent to manual vegetation management practices. The same holds true to reducing damage to public property caused by flying debris from ground mowing machines.
Always dial 8-1-1 before you dig to avoid coming into contact with underground power lines. Whether you are planting new flower beds, bushes, trees, or creating a trench for water, gas, or electric lines, call 8-1-1 before digging.
Carroll Electric continues to educate area youth about proper power line safety through various public and school programs. These programs teach students how electricity and trees can live together in harmony when protected by the proper distance.
