Safety is a cornerstone of who we are. We want to teach you, your kids, your friends, and your neighbors about electric safety. Because that’s also our community, and we want to keep our community safe. We provide free educational presentations.
We asked the 4th grade teaching team at Range View Elementary School in Severance, CO why our Electrical Safety Demonstrations were important for their students. Here’s what they had to say!
Q: Why did you request an electrical safety demonstration? We are currently learning about energy.
A: The (PVREA) Power Town demonstration helps give the students an overview of electricity, how it is transferred, and how to be safe around power lines and boxes.
Q: Why is the material important?
A: The material is important for a variety of reasons including safety and understanding the world around them.
Q: What is the key take-away for the class/group?
A: The presentation was age appropriate and allowed for the students to absorb information, while inquiring deeper. They were all able to ask questions and have them clearly answered.
Q: What is the number one reason someone should see a safety demonstration?
A: A big take-away was when the lineman talked about the reasons to not climb on the power boxes at the park.
Q: Would you recommend this safety demonstration to others? Why?
A: Yes, it was engaging. The students' favorite part of the demonstration was seeing Power Town in action and all the different ways one could be electrocuted. They also learned different ways to stay safe in a power outage and when there are live power lines surrounding a vehicle.
