Electricity Safety and Conservation age-appropriate presentations are tailored to two groups, Kindergarten to grade 4 and grades 5 through grade 8. "Wires", the safety puppet, makes Electrical Safety and Conservation presentations fun and exciting for the younger grades while the older students are offered a more detailed presentation that uses a variety of teaching aids including an electrified display of a miniature village.
Since 2001, we’ve helped deliver more than 2,381 presentations in 423 elementary schools across Ottawa, training more than 277,791 students.
This is a proactive program where we contact schools in our service territory according to a four year rotational schedule. This ensures that the program, offered in English or French, reaches the largest number of children on a regular basis.
