Highline Safety Program
Farmers’ Electric Cooperative offers an electrical safety program for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade.
The High Line Program is designed to educate children about ways to protect themselves from dangers posed by electrical facilities and encourage the safe use of electricity. Students get to see first-hand what can happen when a ladder makes electrical contact, a shovel digs into underground service, a kite gets caught in a line and many other everyday situations where safety can prevent serious accidents.
Electricity enriches our lives every minute of the day. Since just about anything we do in our daily lives involves electricity, learning about electrical safety is a must! Safety is a core value at Farmers’ Electric Cooperative, and we would like to share this information with our Members and the public. We have a speaker who gives electrical safety demonstrations (free of charge) to schools and youth groups using a tabletop display where high voltage electricity is sent through the lines and various safety situations are displayed. Participants meet Neon Leon & Lightnin' Lizzie to see how electricity travels through the body and to the ground. It is a realistic message showing how electrical accidents happen and enforcing how they can be prevented.
