Storm Atiyah, which hit last weekend, should remind us how quickly weather can change at this time of year and the dangers this can bring. Electricity is all around us and we very much take it for granted. This leads us to generally assume it is always safe and we can lower our guard but we must always treat electricity with the respect it deserves.

Operators of equipment should remind themselves of how to react if equipment comes in contact with overhead wires. \ Ramona Farrelly
