SAFETY FIRST

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Lines com­pany Vec­tor has stopped live line work where pos­si­ble and will shut off power when no­ti­fied of low hang­ing or downed power lines on its net­work. Chief ex­ec­u­tive Si­mon Macken­zie says it wants to en­sure com­mu­nity safety. When alerted to a low hang­ing or downed line, Vec­tor will re­motely shut down power to that area, be­fore crews ar­rive on site. As a pre­cau­tion, all lines should be con­sid­ered live at all times. It urges the pub­lic not to ap­proach low hang­ing or downed lines with­out ap­proval from emer­gency ser­vices or a Vec­tor crew at­tend­ing on site.
