You can't see it, smell it, or hear it, but you can feel it. One touch can be deadly. Electricity always seeks the easiest path to the ground. It tries to find a conductor, such as a metal ladder or your body. If you touch an energized bare wire or faulty appliance while you are "grounded", electricity will instantly pass through you to the ground, causing injury or electrocution.
Whether on the job or home with their families, Firelands Electric Cooperative employees think about working safely around electricity all the time. Electricity is one of the most convenient and dependable forms of energy available. It is also one of the safest when you treat it with respect.
