Drone Safety

Keep your drone in sight while in flight!

Flying a drone too close to power lines, electrical substations or other electrical equipment may affect its signal, resulting in a loss of control. Drone incidents involving such equipment can result in power outages, injury or even death.

Stay alert and stay safe with these steps: 

  • Fly your drone at or below 400 feet.
  • Never fly your drone beyond your sight.
  • Stay at least 200 feet away from power lines or other electrical equipment.
  • Do not fly in dark, stormy or windy conditions.
  • Read and follow the drone manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the safety of your drone and people around you.
  • For complete drone flying rules and additional safety tips, please visit the Federal Aviation Administration.
