ESB is this week asking that Nemo Rangers fans don’t put themsleves or others at risk of electrocution by attaching bunting or flags to electricity poles or equipment.
ESB’s Public Safety Manager Arthur Byrne said: “Nemo Rangers are right to proudly celebrate this fantastic achievement of reaching the All Ireland Club Championship finals and display the club colours throughout the town but we ask that flags and bunting should never be attached to electricity poles. It will put you and your neighbours in danger.”
Electricity poles and pylons carry live conductors which are positioned overhead to be out of harm’s way. It is important to keep well away as coming close puts you at serious risk of injury. As well as the risk to the people attaching the flags, others are also put at risk when bunting and flags unravel.
If you see bunting or flags attached to electricity poles, contact ESB Networks on 1850 372 999 and we will deal with this safely.
