If you have noticed that there are trees or shrubs growing too near the powerlines around your home, please do NOT attempt to trim these yourself. Please contact Grimsby Power and arrange for them to do the work. They use qualified professionals who are trained to work near electrical powerlines. Grimsby Power is legally responsible for trimming trees around their assets and there is no need to put yourself in danger.
When planting new trees, shrubs, vines or other vegetation, please do so well away from powerline and transformer box equipment. Leave enough room so that future growth will not interfere with the access that Grimsby Power personnel need to have to respond quickly to potential problems on that equipment. Plants growing near powerlines can potentially create power outages or electrical fires.
Keeping yourself safe from electrical equipment safety hazards will help ensure your time outdoors is as great as possible!
