Peco Emergency hotline:
Representatives are available 24-hours a day to handle your emergency request.
Be aware of the power lines where you live and work
Always assume power lines are energized. This includes power lines on utility poles as well as those entering your home or buildings. Always keep yourself, your equipment, and anything you carry at least 10 feet from power lines. Even though you may notice a covering on a line, NEVER assume it is safe to touch. Stay Away!
Fallen Power lines
Keep yourself and others away from any fallen power lines. You never know when they might be energized. Call PECO right away and report the location of the downed wires. If a line falls on your car, stay in your car. If you must get out of the car, jump clear, do not touch any part of your car and the ground at the same time and stay clear of the fallen line.
