With Pokémon Go players on the rise, Nolin Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation is concerned about people looking to catch the virtual characters around high voltage equipment.
Power lines and electrical substations are no place to be playing around, says Nolin RECC Communications Manager Patsy Whitehead. The consequences of getting close to an electrical substation are electrocution or death. It’s not a game, it’s a reality. and definitely no one will be going home a winner or with more Pokémon characters.
