Electricity is something every person uses every day - whether it's at home, on the job or at school. And it's one of the most dangerous things we use every day. Flying a kite near power line, using a ladder too close to the line that feeds your house, not locating underground utilities before construction or digging in your yard.....these are all things that occur and Victory Electric wants to help educate the public about what not to do. Our electrical safety demonstrations are a great tool to educate the public about electrical safety.
Teaching the community and our youth about the importance of safety around power lines is an importance mission for Victory Electric. Each year, cooperative representatives reach thousands of people with electrical safety messages and demonstrations. We teach people how to prevent electrical accidents in the home and about the dangers of power lines.
We can tailor our safety programs to any age or group, with a variety of topics, videos and a real-life electrical safety display, which physically demonstrates the things electricity can do. Safety demonstrations and presentations are available for civic and community organizations, schools, private businesses, and more. We will come to your business and present a safety program related to your employees and the electrical safety issues thy may face in the workplace or on the job site. Topics include electrical safety in the work place, contractor safety, electrical safety for fire/EMS departments, road workers, farm and ranch electrical safety, and more.
In the high voltage demonstration, Victory Electric lineman use a special trailer they helped build with actual poles, transformers and power lines to demonstrate how electricity works, how power outages happen, and why electrical safety is important. It's also designed to show a lineman's day on the job - whether it's a normal day or working to restore power.
