Report Damaged Electrical Equipment

We rely on our members to help let us know about damage to our system. Use this form to report damage to Flathead Electric Cooperative’s electrical equipment (poles, wires, transformers, etc.).

DANGER! Remember never to touch, go near or drive over downed power lines. Never try to remove a tree or other object from a power line. Wait for a professional to show up. Report any emergency situations to 911.

Know your lines: We often share our poles with phone and cable companies, so sometimes we receive reports from members of damaged lines that are actually phone/cable lines, not power lines. Before submitting this form, please review the illustration below to determine if it’s actually a power line or a phone/cable line that’s been damaged.

(Anything below the primary and secondary lines are TV/phone lines.)

Report Damaged Co-op Equipment

  • Please include address and any other location information that will help us determine where to find the problem.
  • Please be specific. Pole down, leaning pole, drooping/cut wire, wire on ground, etc.
  • It can be very helpful to see photos of damage. If you can safely take photos, please include them here. (Remember to never go near damaged electrical equipment.)
