The Elementary students at CSSC explored how to be safe around electricity. Keith from Boone Electric brought in a demonstration. We were able to see electricity jump and learned that electricity is invisible.

Here is a list of safety tips that we learned during Keith’s presentation:

  • Electricity can severely harm you, which is why you should stay 10 feet away from all power lines.
  • Do not sit or stand on green transformer boxes located around the community.
  • Stay inside your car if you hit a power line pole. If needed, jump out and shuffle away with your feet together.
  • Remember, if you are flying a kite, do not fly near power lines.
  • Do not play around a substation. DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE!
  • If you see a power line touching the ground please call 911 or Boone Electric.
