With the warmer weather, many people are starting all those projects they’ve been putting off.
When working around the house, National Grid is urging everyone to work safely. They held an electrical safety demonstration Thursday morning.
Line workers showed how dangerous it is to be near live wires and, say there are a few safety tips to keep in mind.
“Stay away from the wires that are down, call 911, call National Grid, get the right people out there to identify what's there,” said Stephen Blydenburgh, a line foreman. “It may look harmless, it may be a cable wire whatever it is. It could be wrapped up. You recall what to take your time and stay away from it."
