Safety Awareness is a priority to Palmetto Electric Cooperative.
It is our never-ending goal to educate our members and the community at large about the potential dangers and hazards associated with electricity.
Annually, the co-op sponsors Safety Days, a summer educational program designed to teach children ages 6 through 11 about a variety of safety topics. Topics in the past have included wildlife safety, fire safety, beach and water safety, electrical safety and more! Palmetto Electric also takes its safety demonstrations into local schools and daycare centers to reach as many children in the community as possible. Linny the Lineman, Palmetto Electric’s safety mascot, is a much-requested presence at educational functions as well as local festivals.
Here you will find some resources, including activities and videos, to help teach children how to 'Play It Safe!'
