Nothing is more important to us than public safety. Our company leaders, managers and employees are guided by a culture of safety and concern for the public. Even in the most hazardous of conditions, every move we make is done with your safety in mind. Here are just a few of the safety programs and initiatives taken by TEP.
If you see a downed power line, stay away and call 911! That’s the key message of our annual campaign to educate the public about the dangers of fallen lines and damaged electrical equipment. TEP uses social media channels and local advertising to spread this message.
Our real-time, mobile-friendly outage map on tep.com lets you see the cause of a power outage and the estimated time the lights should come back on.
TEP provides free educational materials to schools and offers live demonstrations for kids and adults focusing on avoiding electrical hazards.
During a major storm, our first priority is responding to electrical hazards that could put you in danger. Field employees and system supervisors work with local fire and police agencies to protect public safety during service restoration efforts.
Planting and trimming season is a good time to remind you to use caution when handling equipment that could make contact with overhead or underground electric lines. Our social media channels are full of helpful safety tips during the spring.
