warning from the state’s largest utility about the dangers of decorating power
poles.   APS says they are seeing more of
this activity and they warn that the thousands of volts that travel through
these high-voltage lines can kill you.  The
utility notes that the danger goes beyond injury to the vandals and extends to
the troubleshooters who are called out to remove the decorations. 

Phoenix Fire Captain Ardel Deliz says that
they know of no incidents or injuries yet from this kind of activity.
