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.

2019 Bookings

Presentations are scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from April 16 to May 9 in 2019.

Packages will be sent out in the new year.

Please coordinate your visits and book early to get your preferred days.
