School Programs- Safety Demos
Teaching the community and our youth about the importance of safety around power lines is the purpose of Beltrami Electric Cooperatives safety demonstrations.
Beltrami Electric conducts a number of school learning programs throughout the service area. From career fairs to electric safety programs, Beltrami Electric believes a strong presence in our local schools will strengthen our communities and bring leadership to future generations.
Each year, accidents in which motorists hit power poles happen tens of thousands of times. Each accident has the potential to bring live power lines to the ground. Tragically, many drivers and passengers who survive the impact are electrocuted when they attempt to leave the vehicle. In the vast majority of cases, the safest action is to stay inside the vehicle until the local electric utility is on the scene to assure the lines are de-energized.
Do you know what to do if the vehicle you're in comes in contact with a power line? This video will give you tips on how to stay safe:
