KEYS OFFICES TO CLOSE IN OBSERVANCE OF INDEPENDENCE DAY

06/27/2017 ~ In observance of Independence Day, Keys Energy Services’ (KEYS) offices will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th.

KEYS’ offices will re-open for regular business on Wednesday, July 5th, at 8:00A.


DONT LET POWER OUTAGES EXPLODE DURING INDEPENDENCE DAY

06/26/2017 ~ Annual Independence Day festivities are a popular time for fireworks. KEYS reminds its customers that power lines and utility poles can be dangerous when setting up firework displays, potentially disrupting the lives of thousands.

KEYS recommends these safety tips to avoid a potentially tragic accident:

- Carefully set up and use fireworks only in areas clear of overhead power lines.

- Do not string fireworks on utility poles.

- If using a ladder or pole to set up fireworks, keep a 10-foot clearance from power lines. Power lines are energized and can cause serious electrical shock, burn, or electrocution.

- If an object becomes entangled in an overhead power line, do not try to free it. Instead call KEYS at (305) 295-1010 to report the problem.

“Our job is to keep the lights on and we’ll do a better job of that if we can keep fireworks from contacting our lines,” said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS’ General Manager & CEO. “We ask that our customers show good judgment while celebrating Independence Day with fireworks,” she added.
