I see what could be a downed power line or a cracked/broken power pole on a piece of equipment or the ground. What do I do?

Do not approach it or anything that is touching it. Call 911 and inform the operator that you believe there is an electrical emergency. Always assume that all wires, regardless of being connected or disconnected, are energized. Do not attempt to clear branches or debris from downed power lines or fallen power poles.
