Winter in Minnesota presents additional challenges to utility workers as well as additional hazards for home and business owners. Collisions between snow plows and power equipment can damage plows and vehicles, create electrical shock hazards to the snow plow operators and general public, and cause power outages.Take special care when plowing near power equipment. Be aware of electrical equipment and power lines, taking note of the locations of electrical cabinets, poles, and guy wires before the snow gets too deep.

If there is significant damage or otherwise dangerous situation, call 911.
