Students at Wescosville Elementary School learned valuable electrical safety lessons thanks to an entertaining theater performance at the school Tuesday, May 1, 2018. More than 100 students watched the performance by the “Safety Detectives,” who were dispatched to the school by program sponsor PPL Electric Utilities. Actors Laura Schaefer and Riley Lindell, from Minnesota-based National Theatre for Children, used theater and humor to teach a number of lessons. They explained what electricity is. They described how it is used. They told students how to identify dangerous electrical situations. And they also gave a lesson on how to prevent and avoid electrical fires. Students were taught about the importance of having smoke detectors in their homes. And they emphasized that the students should, “Open your eyes, be safety wise.” The visit to Wescosville was one about 30 that PPL has planned for schools across the state in April and May. In addition to live performances, the program includes student playbooks, teacher guides, e-books, and digital games and activities that align with the important concepts outlined in the live shows. It’s part of PPL’s plan to deliver electrical safety lessons to 100,000 students over a five-year period. Students are encouraged to share what they’ve learned with their friends and families.
