Energy Safe Kids

Program educates schoolchildren about natural gas safety

EVANSVILLE —

For the sixth consecutive year, Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) and the National Energy Foundation (NEF) brought Energy Safe Kids, an interactive, hands-on safety education program, to area schools. Based on fourth-grade curriculum, the program educates children about natural gas safety through classroom presentations and take home energy safety booklets.

On Thursday, Riverside Elementary School fourth-graders participated in the program.

This fall, Vectren and NEF plan to provide approximately 180 classroom presentations to more than 10,000 students in nearly 150 schools throughout Vectren’s Indiana service territories: Vectren North and Vectren South.

Participating students will learn about the basics of natural gas. Each student will receive an Energy Safety booklet that encourages him/her to Live Smart and Take Action by following safety precautions at home and at school. Each participating teacher/classroom will receive teaching materials that include a teacher guide, accompanying CD and energy instructional posters.
