In Tri-County Electric's ongoing effort to educate our community about electricity, we offer safety programs for children and adults alike. Student programs can be scheduled any time during the school year. Adult demonstrations are offered for organizations or work places.
Our safety experts use a Safe City model which depicts a typical neighborhood scene and shows many electrical contact hazards posed by overhead and underground electrical service.
The model is powered by a transformer that produces a 10,000-volt, 23-milliamp current that creates dramatic arcs when contacts are made. Students get to see first-hand what can happen when a ladder makes electrical contact, a shovel digs into underground service, a kite gets caught in a line, and many other everyday situations where safety can prevent serious accidents.
Kids and adults alike love this classroom display, and our experienced presenters leave them with a lasting impression about the importance of safety around electrical service.
