Committed to Community and Safety 

School Programs

To complement Battle River Power Coop’s commitment to community and safety, we created a presentation that teaches students about electricity and electrical safety while working and playing near power lines and aligns with the current Alberta Grade 5 science curriculum.

This interactive presentation is in the form of a PowerPoint slide show and has a hands-on component with demonstrations known as a Hazard Hamlet (this is a table top simulator that demonstrates unsafe outdoor scenarios involving power lines.)

Students have the opportunity to see and hold a lineman’s personal protective equipment, climbing gear, and high voltage rubber gloves made for handling 25000 volts!

This presentation takes approximately one hour to complete and is provided at no cost to the school. The presentation and hands-on experience can help these young people understand power line dangers.


EMS/Fire Department Teaching 

Battle River Power Coop also has a power line safety presentation applicable to emergency personnel and provides this at no cost. This program includes a high voltage demo presented by one of our Powerline Technicians who demonstrates live line contact with actual power line equipment. These educational presentations assist in coordinating safety and synergies with the county personnel.

 

Our Staff Can Present Within the Following Counties:
