About the Program

Safety education, especially on the risks and hazards of electrical contacts, is a priority for Thunder Bay Hydro, both in-house and in the community.

Each year we present to over a thousand local elementary students in both Public and Separate school boards. The children learn about a variety of topics including:

  • Understanding where electricity comes from and how much we use it.
  • Understanding why electricity can be dangerous.
  • Practical tips to keep safe and recognize danger.

Our one hour in-school presentation combines video, interactive conversations and demonstrations of electrical contact on our Hazard Hamlet display neighbourhood.

If you are a parent whose child is entering grade three or four, talk to your child's teacher about having Thunder Bay Hydro come in during our spring presentations.

2016 WINNING SAFETY POSTERS

Following the 2016 presentations, students were encouraged to illustrate the messages they learned. Hundreds of posters were submitted. Staff selected finalists from each grade and Thunder Bay Hydro Employees voted on the best illustrations of safety messaging in each grade.
