To report an outage call 863-946-6200
Never go near a damaged power line that has fallen to the ground or is dangling in the air. Always assumed downed electric lines are energized and extremely dangerous. Stay away, keep others away and immediately call 911 and Glades Electric Cooperative at 863-946-6200.
- Keep everyone, including pets, out of the area. You cannot look at a downed line and determine if it’s “live.”
- Do not touch a person if a power line is touching them. Immediately call 911. If a power line falls across your vehicle, stay in the car and wait for emergency personnel to cut the power.
- If your vehicle is on fire and you are in imminent danger and you must get out of the vehicle, jump with both feet together as far from the car as possible. If a part of your body touches the car and the ground at the same time, you could be electrocuted.
