How to check the fault card

You can find the DTE fault map here or on the DTE Energy app.

If you see a broken power line:

  • Immediately call DTE Energy at 800-477-4747
  • Suppose the wire is hot. Just because there are no sparks does not mean that the line does not carry electricity.
  • Do not touch a dropped power line or anything touching the wire. Always stay 25 feet from a fallen power line.
  • Do not touch anything or anyone in contact with a dropped power line.
  • Stay away from water near fallen power lines, even small puddles.
  • If a fallen power line comes into contact with your vehicle, STAY INSIDE until help arrives. If you must leave, jump away from the vehicle.
  • Be careful not to stand under damaged tree branches or power lines
  • Be especially careful near metal fences around the area.
