While enjoying spring, remember to play it safe!
Warmer weather is definitely in the air! Neighborhoods throughout Clarksdale are coming to life with the sights and sounds of the season — mowing, blowing leaves, landscaping, planting flowers, trimming trees, starting home improvement projects and, of course, spring cleaning.
While we’re excited about the change of seasons, we also need to be mindful about safety. It’s no surprise that injuries tend to rise this time of year when more of us spend time working outdoors. Spring also can be a season of stormy and sometimes even violent weather, bringing winds that are strong enough to blow down power lines.
For these reasons, CPU is reminding customers to make sure they play it safe this spring by following important safety reminders. This includes being safe when working near power lines around your home or trimming trees that contact power lines or electrical equipment. Even though you may think you’re a safe distance away, electricity can travel or “arc,” potentially causing serious or even fatal injuries.
Please take a moment to watch this short safety video and make sure you and your family enjoy a safe and injury-free spring.
