KAHULUI – New Year’s Eve is a time for rousing celebrations, cherished traditions, and sharing moments with family and friends. If you plan to ring in the New Year with fireworks, Maui Electric urges you to use caution, and offers the following safety tips:
- Carefully set up and use fireworks in an area clear of overhead power lines.
- Do not string fireworks on utility poles.
- Ensure a 10-foot clearance from power lines when using ladders or other tools to string fireworks.
- If an object should become tangled in an overhead power line, don’t try to free it. Call Maui Electric’s trouble line at 871-7777 on Maui, or toll free on Moloka‘i or Lāna‘i at 1-877-871-8461.
