For safety reasons and to help ensure reliability of electricity supply, it is important to regularly check and maintain property poles. This is generally the responsibility of the property owner.
Over time, the base of the pole can deteriorate through decay, termite damage or rust. If this occurs, the pole may weaken, lean or fall over, and potentially cause injury to people or damage to surrounding property.
A fallen pole may also bring down the power line supplying electricity to your home. This is not only dangerous, as fallen power lines can kill, but will also interrupt the electricity supply to your home until the pole can be replaced by your contractor.
