Contractors and construction workers are constantly surrounded by electricity and natural gas on work sites. Duke Energy wants to make sure workers avoid hazards by practicing some basic safety rules while working around overhead and underground utility lines.
In an electric or natural gas emergency, call 911, then immediately contact Duke Energy.
Police, firefighters and EMTs are usually the first to arrive on the scene of an emergency, and face the greatest risk of electrical and natural gas hazards. These first responders should know how to recognize and manage those hazards, for everyone’s safety.
