High winds, heavy snow and falling trees occasionally knock power lines to the ground. Idaho Power reminds you to always assume a downed power line is energized and dangerous. Stay as far away as possible, and keep others away.
If you see a downed power line, immediately call 911 and Idaho Power at 208-388-2323 in the Treasure Valley or 1-800-488-6151.
