ACTEWAGL is reminding the community to stay safe around electricity and gas assets.
“Maintaining a safe and reliable network is our priority and the community can help by reporting damaged and unsecure equipment,” ActewAGL Manager Works Delivery Clinton McAlister said.
“It’s important that the community understands the dangers of damaged or unsecured gas and electricity assets and maintains their safety around all assets.
“If anyone in the community sees damaged or unsecure equipment it’s important to report it to ActewAGL right away. Any equipment that is not maintained or secured has the risk of causing large issues such as blackouts for whole streets or suburbs.
“Additionally, unsecured or damaged assets can pose a great risk to the community’s safety. Electricity can arc or jump if objects are in the path of the electrical current, so electric shock can result even if live wires aren’t touched.
“Unsecured or damaged assets include open or damaged substation doors, covers removed from mini pillars, damaged electrical poles and wires and bent or broken gas meter pipes.
“If you see any damaged or unsecured electricity or gas assets make sure you keep yourself and others clear and report it immediately to ActewAGL on 13 10 93 for electricity and 13 19 09 for gas.”
