Fly your kites in wide-open spaces.
Check your surroundings before you put your kite in the air
Fly your kites away from power lines and utility poles. Electricity can easily travel down your kite lines to you and this can be dangerous
Fly your kites away from trees since they can
Fly your kites on days when there is rain or stormy weather. Kites can attract lightning which can seriously injure you.
Fly your kites on busy streets or along highways where drivers could be distracted or hit you.
Never fly your kite too close to other kites since it can become entangles or damaged or cause an accident.
Try to retrieve your kites from trees which have power lines running through them
Fly your kite near the path of an incoming aircraft
Remember: If your kite becomes snagged in a power line don’t try to remove it. Call our emergency hot-line 626-900 and we’ll remove it
