Safety tips

  • Hydro Ottawa asks the public to respect work site perimeters by keeping a safe distance from crews and as they work on energizing the power grid. 
  • If customers notice downed power lines, stay at least 10 metres away (the length of a school bus) from the wires and from any objects that are in contact with the lines such as trees. If there is a downed power line, please call us at 613 738-0188.
  • Drive carefully. When traffic signals are out, always treat intersections as all-way stops and proceed through intersections with caution.
  • As power is being restored, Hydro Ottawa reminds residents to conserve their use of energy and avoid turning on all electronics and appliances to avoid impacting the electricity supply.
  • Please reserve the use of 911 to situations where there is a risk to public safety, and life-threatening emergencies.
