ComEd Reminds Residents to Practice Balloon Safety During Graduation Season

Foil Balloons released into the air may pose a critical risk to power lines.

FOLLOWING THESE HELPFUL TIPS  WILL HELP TO ENSURE SAFETY: 

 
•  Keep balloons secured inside of homes or attached to weights if displaced outside
•  Properly dispose of foil balloons by puncturing them to release helium and prevent escape

• 
Refrain from touching a power line to retrieve a balloon or any object entangled with electrical equipment
•  Assume power lines are always live and keep a safe distance of at least 10 feet from active lines
  Call ComEd at 1-800-EDISON-1 (1-800-334-7661) for assistance
