Flood Safety

DS&O advises the public and its members to folow these safety guidelines:

  • Avoid floodwaters - Water may be electrically charged from underground or downed power lines.
  • Always assume a downed power line is "live" or "hot" even if it looks harmless. If the wire is energized, it will electrically charge anything that comes into contact with it.
  • Stay clear, warn others around you to keep away and call DS&O at 1-800-376-3533 immediately.


  • Do not walk through standing water.
  • If you are unsure of your safety, leave the building.
