Electrical substations may be on ‘Pokémon Go’ game app

Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association (WH) and other electric utilities are urging everyone to be cautious when using the new "Pokémon Go" app and to stay away from all electrical facilities. The app uses buildings and landmarks as gathering sites for players. The electric cooperatives learned there is discussion that players can catch electric-type Pokémon near substations and transformers.
Electrical equipment can be dangerous and should not be considered gaming locations. WH urges gamers, members and the public to stay away from substations, all power lines and equipment on utility poles and underground electrical facilities commonly identifiable as those green boxes in neighborhood yards. Never attempt to enter substations, go over a fence or climb utility poles to try and reach transformers. Serious injury or death can occur.

Thirty firefighters and nearly a dozen instructors took part in the training burn at the Pribyl residence on Maple Lake last Saturday. “The owners of the home approached us and said they were demolishing the building and were interested in including the Maple Lake Fire Department in the process,” said Scott Carriveau, lead instructor for Customized Fire Rescue Training, Inc. “We appreciated the opportunity to participate. We had 15 burn rotations, each with a team of three, and every team was followed by a lead instructor and two others with a back-up hose. The instructors will only intervene if firefighters are in danger. We were able to train firefighters from Maple Lake, Annandale, Buffalo and Monticello.”
