Since 1992 Electricity Safety & Conservation has represented various hydro companies in Ontario, by offering electrical safety presentations to elementary school students in grades JK through Grade 8.
Utilizing various teaching methods our presentations deal with electrical safety & conservation in the school and home, and outdoors around utility poles, towers and substations. Our programs are designed for two age groups: JK-grade 4
and grades 5-8. The students in grades JK-4 meet “Wires” the safety puppet and learn 15-20 safety & conservation messages that they are able to take home to their parents.
The grade 5-8 presentation examines electrical safety & conservation issues in more detail. We talk about electrical hazards in the home, the dangers within electrical substations, and what to do if they are in a car accident involving a utility pole and power line.
