Presentations for Teachers -- Lineman Speakers Bureau
Kansas City Power & Light wants to help all children be safe around
electricity. That's why our retired linemen -- the workers children
often see in KCP&L trucks and on utility poles -- formed the Lineman
Speakers Bureau. Linemen know electrical hazards inside and out.
And they know the importance of safety around electrical equipment.
The Lineman Speakers Bureau offers electrical safety presentations
to elementary schools in areas served by KCP&L. The 60-minute presentation
targets specific age groups to help teach safety concepts. Although
the preferred group size is 25 to 30 students, the speakers gladly
offer more than one presentation a day to accommodate several classrooms.
presentations include a video and electrical safety demonstrations.
Children learn about the electrical equipment they often see in
their neighborhoods and homes, and the presenters stress the importance
of playing away from power lines, transformers and other potentially
dangerous electrical equipment. The speakers provide age-appropriate
handouts that reinforce the lessons learned.
If you teach in the greater Kansas City area or surrounding communities
served by KCP&L, and you'd like to set up a presentation by the Lineman Speakers Bureau, please contact the Program Coordinator by email.
