Keeping you safe

If the lights go out, are you ready?

Your power can go off at any moment. Most outages are short, but as we saw last October after an unseasonable snowstorm, a severe weather event can knock out power for several days over wide areas.

Safety on the farm

Farm accidents can cause severe injuries, death, and damage to property and livestock. Most accidents are preventable.

Do-it-yourselfer? Don’t get shocked!

Manitoba Hydro wants to keep you safe. Remember, even a little current can kill. If you feel a shock while using an electric tool, safely discard it the first time it shocks you — the next time you may not be so lucky.

Dig safe – know what’s below

If you’re planning a home project that involves digging – fence post holes, planting shrubs, installing a sprinkler system, or putting in a flower bed – first find out if there are any underground natural gas and electrical lines.

How to spot a scam

Scammers are always finding new ways to steal your money. They’re even taking advantage of the pandemic by preying on people’s fears – threatening to turn your power off within half an hour if you don’t pay immediately.
