Utility Presents Electrical Safety Program

PowerTown demonstration at West Elementary.

New Richmond Utilities recently presented PowerTown, an electrical safety program, to all second grade students at West Elementary.

PowerTown teaches kids of all ages how to be safe around electricity and electrical equipment. Following the presentation, a short movie called “Louie the Lightning Bug” was shown to reinforce the electrical safety message.

New Richmond Utilities presents PowerTown to second grade students each year. We also present a water and wastewater program to fourth grade students during National Drinking Water Week in May.
