First Electric Cooperative
On Wednesday, April 24 home school families are invited to visit First Electric Cooperative in Jacksonville for a Home School Families – Electrical Safety Day. This event will allow students of all ages to learn more about electricity and how to live, work and play safely around it.
For 1st through 5th grade students, we will have a special guest here to present an age-appropriate presentation called “Making Accidents Disappear”. This presentation uses magic tricks to help students learn the three magic words to keep you safe when you encounter a dangerous situation involving electricity.
Students in 6th through 12th grade will see First Electric’s High Voltage Safety Demonstration. This presentation teaches students how electricity is generated and delivered to your home as well as information about the electric grid and the many safety measures our linemen take to protect themselves while working with high voltage lines. Come let us show you what 7,620 volts of electricity looks like!
This exciting opportunity for home school families has limited space available so sign up today and reserve a space for your family. The presentations will take approximately 45-60 minutes. Afterwards, students will be able to participate in a hands on electrical activity. Students will also have the chance to visit our dispatch center to get a behind the scenes look at the technology and coordination it takes to deliver safe and reliable electricity to thousands of homes, businesses and farms in our state. #FirstElectric#ImprovingQualityofLife
