Fireworks safety tips


Hawaii Electric Light Company urges the public to use caution if celebrating New Year’s Eve with fireworks.

Carefully set up and use fireworks in an area clear of overhead power lines. Do not string fireworks on utility poles.

If using a ladder, pole, or tie lines to set up fireworks, keep a 10-foot clearance from power lines. Power lines are energized and not insulated and could cause a serious electrical shock, burn, or electrocution.

If an object should become entangled in an overhead power line, don’t try to free it.

HELCO’s trouble line can be reached at 969-6666.
