Maui Electric Urges Caution on New Year’s Eve
By Maui Now Staff
Maui Electric urges Maui County residents to use caution as they ring in the New Year with family and friends:
Set up and use fireworks in an area clear of overhead power lines.
Do not use utility poles or lines for stringing fireworks.
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 yourself. 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.
