Step Potential: What To Do and Not To Do Around a Downed Power Line

Thank you to Puget Sound Energy for making this electrical safety video. GREAT job!

Everyone needs to know about touch potential and step potential, and what to do if something like this happens to you, whether you’re in the car or you are a bystander. Don’t assume this won’t happen to you – an accident like this can occur anywhere at any time.
