Programs for Children
There’s something about the combination of theater and humor that grabs kids’ attention and keeps it. Just ask any of the 15,000 children across our service territory who got kid-friendly, long-lasting lessons in electrical safety from a stage show. Safety Detectives in Hot Pursuit, which teaches kids about electricity, how it’s used, and how to identify dangerous situations and prevent fires, was performed at 37 schools in 2017. It’s part of our plan to deliver its safety message to 100,000 youngsters over a five-year period. The goal is to teach young children lessons they will remember for a lifetime and share with their family and friends.
PPL also offers a free website that parents and teachers can use to teach electrical safety. There are activities and games for a wide age range with lessons on safety and energy conservation.
