Safety Programs


Electricity is an important part of our lives. It's all around us, every day. It makes our lives more comfortable and our jobs easier. In fact, we sometimes take electricity for granted and forget it is a powerful force that deserves our respect, with the potential to cause serious injury and sometimes even death.

We want you to have all the information you need to safely live and work where electricity is present. Our electrical safety program can help you learn more about how to stay safe around electricity.

Safety City is an electrical safety program for students, youth groups, emergency personnel, contractors, adult groups and other organizations. Safety City uses a model to demonstrate real-life scenarios involving electricity and explain how to stay safe in these situations.

Safety City is free and can be arranged to come to your location (within the areas we serve). Presenters will bring everything they need to engage the group in an active demonstration of electrical safety. All you need to provide is an electrical outlet.

Safety City may be scheduled at a date and time convenient for your group by calling 228-865-5231. The program typically lasts 30 - 60 minutes, depending on questions.

Safety tip

Stay away from downed lines. If you ever see a wire on the ground, assume it is energized. Report a downed wire to the power company here and call 911.
