You never know where you might find electricity. But one thing is for sure, if you’re not careful it will find you.
Accidents involving electricity can have tragic outcomes. At CL&P, safety is always the first priority. CL&P takes this approach on behalf of our employees, their families and friends, our neighbors and the 1.2 million customers we serve in 149 communities across Connecticut. It’s important to CL&P that everyone knows where a potentially dangerous situation may occur, and how to prevent or respond to a situation that involves you!
First and foremost, NEVER touch power lines - there is no way for you to know if a wire is dead or alive, and the risk is just too great. Don't put your life on the line. Whether you’re on the job, in the yard, or in your home, electricity can hurt you. CL&P cares for the safety of its communities.
