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, more than 2,320 presentations have been delivered to over 268,880 students in 403 elementary schools across the Ottawa community.
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.
