Safety Tips around Electricity

With electricity it's always best to err on the side of caution. Here are just some of the most important guidelines for the use and handling of electricity.

Tree Trimming...

Trees can cause power outages when branches rub against power lines, or branches break and fall on lines or when trees are blown over on to power lines during storms. Please call us to report downed trees or vegetation growing into or through power lines at 978 827-4423. backhoe-digging
