Every year in the United States, tens of thousands of people are killed or injured from contact with electricity. In fact, one person is electrocuted in the home every 25 hours, according to the latest data available from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. These types of accidents are also the leading cause of death for children, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
To educate children about electrical safety and encourage them to develop their artistic expression, KUA is calling for entries in the utility’s 23rd annual calendar art contest. Open to Osceola County students in kindergarten through fifth grade, the contest is designed to promote electrical safety among students and their families. We emphasize safety through this initiative because research conducted by the utility shows that key safety messages delivered early in life help establish a lifetime of good safety practices.
