Safety Education & Training
Each fall, in partnership with the National Energy Foundation, Vectren provides a natural gas and electric safety program to students in the fourth grade throughout its service area. Nearly 15,000 students enjoy an interactive, classroom presentation labeled, Energy Safe Kids. Students learn how to be safe around these reliable energy sources and are encouraged to share their knowledge with family and friends.

Electric Live Wire Demonstration
Emergency responders, school groups, construction crews and electricians can learn about electric safety first hand as a trained Vectren professional demonstrates the power of a live electrical line at your facility with a Live Wire Demonstration.
During this 30-45 minute outdoor presentation, you explore how electricity flows through power lines and see how it can be disrupted. A trained line specialist will explain the unique equipment and how the bucket truck operates as he perches high above the crowd. The audience is encouraged to participate through questions and interactions with the line specialist's unique tools and equipment.
To schedule a demonstration for your school or organization, email Vectren directly.
Demonstrations are available within Vectren's electric service area only.
