Lumbee River EMC puts a lot of energy into educating the public about electricity. We regularly offer safety demonstrations to students and other groups throughout our service area in an effort to teach important safety lessons to the participants.
A small town is actually set up including miniature buildings and streets as well as overhead wires that at the flip of a switch, conduct real electricity. The presentation lasts approximately forty-five minutes, but it can be tailored to your needs.
Personal protective equipment used by a line worker is passed around to the participants. Their tool-laden work belts and bulky, insulated safety gloves and sleeves are used as part of this hands on demonstration.
