Treat downed wires as live and dangerous. If you’re near a wire, shuffle (keeping both feet touching the ground) until you are at least 20 metres away from the wires and call 911.
In and Around Your Vehicle STAY PUT, STAY SAFE!
Driving? Stay in your vehicle and call 911. Communicate to others who may want to help you. Warn them to stay away from your vehicle.
GENERAL GENERATOR SAFETY TIPS
Generators can be a helpful backup power source during outages, but they must be installed and operated safely. All generators must be installed by a qualified electrician. The electrician must apply for a wiring permit and have the generator inspected by a Nova Scotia Power before it is used. See a list of qualified electricians and book an appointment with a Nova Scotia Power wiring inspector.
HYDRO SAFETY TIPS
We operate 17 hydroelectric systems, 53 generators and approximately 155 dams on lakes and rivers around Nova Scotia to generate renewable electricity. One hydro system may contain several generators and many dams to create electricity.
