Outdoor Safety Rules
THERE ARE SOME VERY IMPORTANT RULES TO PLAYING IT SAFE OUTDOORS.
- Never play near substations, transmission lines, or power lines, and never climb trees near these lines. Smart boaters and airplane pilots steer clear of transmission and power lines, and so should you.
- Make sure you never use a ladder or place a TV antenna or satellite dish near power lines
- Don't stay in a swimming pool, or lake, or around trees, or power poles in bad weather. You could get struck by lightning. Seek indoor shelter immediately in a lightning storm.
- Always keep radios and other electrical appliances at least 10 feet away from a swimming area. If water splashes on them, they can conduct electricity through the water. Don't touch or go near these appliances when you are wet or standing in water.
- Make sure you are using an approved outdoor electrical cord or extension cord.
