Snow clearing operations have created high snowbanks in parking lots and schoolyards.
Although these snowbanks are a source of delight for kids, who like climbing on them and sliding down, they can also represent a significant risk if they are close to electrical equipment.
Hydro-Québec would like to remind the public to never let anyone or anything get within three metres of power lines. It’s a matter of life and death. It is also forbidden to climb the fences surrounding Hydro-Québec facilities.
If there are power lines or other electrical equipment near a snowbank, keep the kids away and help them find somewhere else to play.
If you spot a dangerous situation nearby, call 9-1-1.
