Safety Demonstrations

The most important thing with electricity is safety. SVEC is pleased to present to schools and other organizations our safety demonstration, which is a kit that we use to go through various scenarios, showing students places where they might encounter potentially dangerous situations with electricity. Usually used for classes/children fourth grade and below.  If you would like more information about a demonstration for your group, please e-mail Cammie Tutwiler.
