Medina EC Presentations

Keeping our communities safe

Medina EC knows electricity is both dangerous and fascinating and wants to help keep people safe. To do this, we offer safety presentations for schools, chambers of commerce, civic organizations, members and first responders in our service area.

Our most popular presentation is our high-voltage live line demonstration, in which Medina EC linemen use a smaller version of working power lines and transformers to show the results of various situations. It demonstrates what happens if someone touches a power line with their finger or a mylar balloon gets caught on a power line, teaches what to do if you are in a car accident near a power line and much more.

We also have a high-tech safety tabletop display that uses a 3D model to show how to safely use electricity. It gives examples of real-life scenarios including vehicle accidents with power lines, ladders coming into contact with power lines, dangers of playing near substations and so much more.

We offer presentations on energy efficiency, for career days and customized for specific audiences as well as materials to help in the classroom.

Learn more about the presentations Medina EC offers at MedinaEC.org/Presentations, and email MyCoop@MedinaEC.org if you are interested in scheduling a presentation. Shortened video versions of the presentations are also available if you would like something to show in your classroom.
