Electrical safety taught in Bundaberg schools

A NEW, smaller-sized hero is frequenting the schools, playgrounds and homes of Bundaberg this week with the launch of Ergon Energy's new school safety program, Safety Heroes.

The program launched in almost 700 primary schools this week teaches children the basics of electrical safety into the classroom.

"Electrical safety basics are a 'must have' for all children," Ergon Energy Fraser Burnett lines manager Craig Harris said.

Member for Bundaberg Leanne Donaldson joined Mr Harris at St Mary's Catholic Primary School yesterday to help launch Safety Heroes in the Wide Bay region.

The Safety Heroes program will teach children about how electricity works, home electrical safety, storm and cyclone preparedness, fallen power lines and safety around overhead power lines.
