Electrical Safety Presentation

Electrical safety and energy efficiency are a vital part of educating our youth, and something they take home to apply to daily life.  Dickson Electric System continues their commitment to providing this information to elementary students in the Kindergarten – 5 Grade level with an exciting live presentation.

• Our energized PowerTOWN model grabs the student’s attention with the sight and sound of electrical arcs to demonstrate how electricity travels, the hazards, and how to be safe around electricity indoors and out.

• Adult hosts and students are provided gift bags with activity booklets about electrical safety and saving energy, magnets, stickers, and other gift items.

• Brochures are also available at the adult level on electrical safety, power outages, and being prepared for emergencies.

We welcome requests from teachers, youth education groups, clubs, or other organizations that may be interested in an electrical safety demonstration.  Please contact:
