Good Shepherd fourth graders learn about energy safety

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Some fourth graders at Good Shepherd Catholic School receive an education in energy safety. 

For the eighth straight year, Vectren and the National Energy Foundation are visiting Evansville area schools to teach kids about natural gas and electrical safety. 

The presentation is an interactive, hands-on program, which also discusses renewable and non-renewable energy resources.

“What’s nice is what they learn, they take home to their parents and they discuss the safety of carbon monoxide detectors, what natural gas would smell like if there’s a leak, so they'd know what to do and to call 911 or to call 411 before you dig,” said Paula Bell. 

Each child received a take-home energy safety booklet from Monday’s presentation.
