What to do if your truck brings down pow­er­lines

Owner Driver - - The Goods | News From The Highway And Beyond -


STAY in the truck. Call 000 im­me­di­ately.


If there’s an im­me­di­ate dan­ger, like fire, and evac­u­a­tion is AB­SO­LUTELY

nec­es­sary, as­sess your es­cape route and check for fallen pow­er­lines.


Exit the truck by jump­ing – make sure to land with both feet to­gether.


When jump­ing, don’t touch the truck and the ground at the same time.


Once you’ve landed with both feet to­gether (be care­ful not to stum­ble or fall), jump or shuf­fle with your feet to­gether away from the truck.


Move in this way un­til you are at least 10 me­tres away from the truck. DO NOT go back.
