- Mylar, other types of balloons and all objects should be kept away from overhead power lines and other utility equipment. These objects can become entangled in lines and cause an outage.
- Keep balloons tethered and attached to weights at all times.
- Properly dispose of Mylar balloons by puncturing the balloon to release helium that otherwise could cause the balloon to float away.
- NEVER touch a power line. Do not attempt to retrieve a balloon, toy or other type of debris that is entangled in an overhead power line. For assistance, call PECO to report the problem at 1-800-494-4000 so our crews can remove the item safely.
- Always assume power lines are energized and keep yourself, your belongings and anything you are carrying at least 10 feet away from power lines.
