Electrical Safety Day May 17, 2018

On Thursday May 17th it was electrical safety day in British Columbia.  We were fortunate to have someone from BC Hydro come and teach us a few things about how to be safe around electricity.

The three most important lessons we learned when power lines are down are:

1. Look up and down for safety hazards.
2. Call 911 for help.
3. Stay at least 10 m away.

Did you know 10 m is about the length of a school bus.  It is also the distance we are standing away from our classroom door in the images below.

Electricity brings us many things, but it's also something we need to be careful with.
