Storms and Safety
Safety is the No. 1 priority at Tampa Electric. Around electrical infrastructure of all kinds, our message to you is simple: for your own safety, never touch power lines, climb on power poles, play on transformers, or tamper with equipment in any other way. If you see what looks like trouble with electrical equipment – a downed power line, tree branches growing into wires, an open transformer or something like that – or when in doubt, keep your distance and let us know right away.
