Community: High Voltage Safety Demo
Power Line Safety Demonstration
According to the U.S. Consumer and Product Safety Commission, hundreds of consumer deaths occur each year from direct or indirect contact with power lines. These experiences are not "freak accidents." In fact, most electrical injuries can be avoided, provided you take the time to learn some safety skills.
Educating children (and adults) about the importance of electrical safety is part of our ongoing commitment to our communities. Through our power line safety presentation, PPCS linemen demonstrate some of the dangers of coming in contact with overhead and underground electrical equipment. Our message includes: keep kites and other objects away from power lines, don’t climb trees near power lines, stay away from green transformer boxes, and always ask permission before you dig.
PPCS offers power line safety demonstrations to schools, emergency services personnel and other groups/organizations. If you would like to schedule a demonstration, contact us at 715-273-4355, 800-924-2133 or send us an e-mail.
