For the sixth
consecutive year, Vectren Energy Delivery and the National Energy
Foundation plan to bring Energy Safe Kids, an interactive, hands-on
safety education program, to area schools.
Based on fourth-grade curriculum,
the program educates children about natural gas and electric safety through
classroom presentations and take home energy safety booklets.
As a follow-up
lesson, teachers are encouraged to schedule a Live
Wire demonstration. The outdoor activity teaches children about
electrical safety while a trained Vectren line specialist demonstrates the
power of a live electrical line and perches above the crowd in a bucket truck.
Kids presentations will be at the following schools this week:
School – Monday, September 30 at 9:00 a.m.
Elementary School – Thursday, October 3 at 10:00 a.m.
Elementary School – Thursday, October 3 at 12:10 p.m. and 1:10 p.m.
Elementary School – Friday, October 4 at 12:15 p.m.
Safe Kids covers serious safety issues, we present this information in a fun,
memorable way," said Brad Ellsworth, president of Vectren South. "After all of
the presentations are complete, we invite the teachers and students to participate
in a video contest using what they learn from the safety education program to
teach other kids to be energy safe."
Vectren and NEF plan to provide approximately 180 classroom presentations to
more than 10,000 students in nearly 150 schools throughout Vectren's Indiana
service territories: Vectren North and Vectren South.
students will learn about the basics of natural gas and/or electricity. Each student will receive an Energy Safety
booklet that encourages him/her to Live
Smart and Take Action by
following safety precautions at home and at school. Each participating teacher/classroom will
receive teaching materials that include a teacher guide, accompanying CD and
energy instructional posters.
