Lake Region Electric sent two employees in to visit with third grade students about electrical safety. They visited with kids about the importance of being safe around electricity and steps to take during an electrical emergency. The two-man crew discussed safety of flying kites, playing around electrical ground boxes and finding downed power lines.

An electrical table was brought in and set up to simulate electrical emergencies and what can happen to someone if they are not being safe. They brought in safety equipment to show the kids, and then they took the kids outside to look at their truck.
