What Do Kids Need To Know About Electricity?



Consolidated Electric Cooperative has partnered with Safe Electricity to help educate children about electricity.

Take time to explore the Electrical Safety World where you can learn about:

  • Where Electricity Comes From
  • How Electricity Travels
  • Hidden Dangers
  • How Electricity Can Hurt You
  • Tree & Power Line Safety
  • How To Inspect Your Home

Start a conversation with your family about electrical safety hazards or measures that are in place around your home. It may help prevent an accident or save a life.

Curious children may be too young to understand the dangers of playing with electrical outlets or power cords.

Installing simple plastic outlet covers is one of the best ways to keep little fingers from coming into contact with electricity.
