Power line safety

TCEC recognizes electrical safety month with poster contest for kids

Accidentally making contact with a power line can be dangerous and in some cases, even deadly. We want to help our members stay safe around power lines.

In recognition of national electrical safety month in May, TCEC is holding a poster contest for children in grades 3rd through 6th throughout nineteen schools its service territory. This year’s poster contest theme is ‘power line safety.’
