First responders, such as firefighters, police and medical personnel, encounter many hazards while performing the vital role of protecting people and property. Electrical hazards are often difficult to detect. It’s important to understand more about these hazards and to learn about electrical safety dos and don’ts when responding to an emergency.
Newfoundland Power’s team of professionals can teach first responders how to recognize electrical hazards and avoid injuries to themselves and the public.
Our electrical safety seminar is designed to educate and better equip all first responders when dealing with emergencies that may involve electricity.
Any member of a career or volunteer fire department, police detachment and/or medical facility.
The seminar runs between 1 ½ to 2 hours.
Your choice of location that is large enough to accommodate 30-35 people.
If your fire department, police detachment or medical facility is located in an area serviced by Newfoundland Power, we will visit you there (usually on your regular meeting night).
This is a FREE service offered by Newfoundland Power
