With high winds in the L.A. area, the City wants to remind you to never touch a downed or dangling wire no matter how small, or anyone, or anything in contact with it. Always assume a downed wire is still energized with high voltage electricity. Stay away, and immediately call 9-1-1!

Please use MyLA311 to report tree emergencies you may come across, including;  

  • tree down  
  • hanging limbs  
  • limbs down 

Stay safe L.A.!
