Which lines are power lines?

It can be difficult to distinguish between a power, cable, or telephone line, so you must regard any down line as energized and potentially dangerous. If there is water near the line, the risk is even greater, since water conducts electricity. Never touch a downed wire regardless of how harmless it looks! Keep children away from this potential hazard. Call Wadsworth Electric 330-335-2833 to report any downed lines or equipment.
