Protecting the Public

Police BarricadeSecure the area to keep the public away until LG&E, KU or ODP personnel tell you it is safe. Reroute traffic, and establish a safety perimeter to keep the affected area off-limits.

If there are transformers or circuit breakers involved in the situation, be alert for explosions, smoke hazards and oil releases. If an oil release occurs, follow your department’s evacuation guidelines for a hazardous materials response.
