We make electrical safety a priority at Linn County REC. Each year children and adults are injured in electrical accidents that could have easily been prevented. We feel that educating our members and local community is important to prevent these accidents from occurring.
Linn County REC offers free electrical safety and energy efficiency education presentations for children and adults in our service territory. If you have school age children, talk to their teachers about bringing one of these informative presentations to their classroom.
Linn County REC offers separate electrical safety presentations to accommodate different age levels. Based on the audience targeted, you can choose the one that best fits your needs.
- PowerUp with Electricity - Designed for kindergarten through 1st grade, this presentation includes a discussion about electricity. It incorporates a story book featuring “Chip the LED Kid” explaining the importance of electrical safety. Plus Chip himself makes an appearance.
- Hazard Hamlet - Designed for 2nd through 5th grades, this presentation uses a remote controlled display showing various scenes where electrical safety is crucial. It dramatically shows what can happen when you come in contact with electricity.
- The Shocking Truth - Designed for 6th through 8th grades, this presentation features an 18 minute live action dvd highlighting safety lessons learned while two students research a science project.
Another important topic Linn County REC is focused on and promotes is energy efficiency. We hear a lot about this topic in the news today and while Linn County REC has long promoted energy efficiency by offering incentives and education to our members, we are excited to add another free presentation opportunity.
- Energy Efficiency...What's It All About - Designed for 6th through 8th grades, this presentation is focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy topics.
Presentations take approximately forty-five minutes and include a coloring book for the younger students or an activity book for the older students.
Linn County REC encourages schools to target one grade level (ideally where electricity is being studied) and invite us to visit that grade on a yearly basis. This allows the entire student body to receive this information as they funnel through that particular grade level.
