Todd-Wadena Electric advises students to 'play it safe' around power lines
Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative energy management technician, Greg Jacobson, gave an insightful electrical safety demonstration recently to fifth-grade students at Wadena-Deer Creek Middle/High School.
The purpose of the program is to instruct youths on the safe use of electricity. Jacobson addressed basic electricity terms, the equipment lineworkers wear to protect themselves when working around power lines, the dangers of downed power lines, and to "play it safe" around electricity at home.
Students had numerous questions to ask of Jacobson about electrical dangers and safety.
