Lewis County REC believes it is important to bring electric safety education to our communities and local schools!
Elementary Safety Demonstrations
We coordinate with Northeast Missouri Electric Power Cooperative (Northeast Power) to provide safety demonstrations for our local elementary schools. These demonstrations give students basic information on electricity and how the Cooperative works, as well as providing them detailed information on the hazards of electricity. These safety demonstrations are typically geared toward children in the 4th and/or 5th grade.
Live Line Demonstrations
Lewis County REC and Northeast Power also team up to bring Live Line Demo Inc. to our local middle schools, high schools and community groups. Live Line Demo Inc. is an electric safety program that demonstrates live contact with 7200 volts of electricity! It is designed to educate our members, their families and the public on how to protect themselves around electricity.
