Pee Dee Electric Cooperative’s energy efficiency representative, Chris Port has been touring elementary schools across the Pee Dee with the “Power Town” educational and electrical safety demonstration for over a year and a half now. He’s visited 15 schools and over 1,000 students.
Chris gives a fun and interactive safety demonstration that drives home the message of electrical safety. The traveling Power Town kit allows him to educate students on substations, power lines, and the dangers of trees and vehicles near electric lines. Students even get to see live electricity arcing throughout part of the demonstration and pass around some lineman equipment. Power Town is a great opportunity to educate people of all ages how to “Play it Safe Around Electricity”. PDEC offers this free demonstration to all communities throughout the Pee Dee.
