Electricity substations

You will find electricity substations and power equipment all over the place. They are behind fences, in buildings, or on the side of the footpath, and most have danger signs. Substations transform the voltage generated at power stations so it can be distributed to homes, schools and businesses. Sometimes they are near parks and play areas. Substations are safe, but you must follow the rules.

  • Sometimes it's tempting to ignore signs and fences around substations. Remember, the warnings are there for everyone's protection, so make sure you follow them!
