At Macon Electric Cooperative, we feel it is important to bring electric safety education to our communities and local schools!
Elementary Safety Demonstrations
We coordinate with Northeast Missouri Electric Power Cooperative to provide safety demonstrations for our local elementary schools. These demonstrations give students basic information on electricity and how the Cooperative works, as well as providing them detailed information on the hazards of electricity. These safety demonstrations are typically geared toward children in the 4th and/or 5th grade.
Live Line Demo
MEC and Northeast Missouri Electric Power Cooperative also team up to bring Live Line Demo to our local middle schools, high schools and community groups. This is an electric safety program that demonstrates live contact with 7200 volts! It is designed to educate our members on how to protect themselves and others from injury or death.
