WEC offers a variety of safety information and demonstrations for teachers, students and the general public about electrical and weather safety.
“Safety City” Demonstration
WEC’s “Safety City” program is a hands-on demonstration to teach about safety around electric lines and equipment and how to protect themselves from electrical-related injury. It also educates, informs and instructs about how electricity is generated, transmitted and used. The stars of the show, “Lightning Liz” and “Neon Leon”, are shown in many different scenarios in a typical neighborhood and country setting and actually “light up” to illustrate how electricity can travel through people and objects.

Safe Electricity is a multi-media public awareness program of the Energy Education Council dedicated to promoting electrical safety and energy efficiency. Safe Electricity’s life saving message is reaching more consumers nationwide through the participation of utility partners like Wiregrass Electric Cooperative. Click here for website.
