Festival Hydro runs an annual school safety program to educate children about how to stay safe around electricity.

With Festival Hydro’s commitment to Public Safety, and local interest in electrical-awareness education, Festival Hydro Inc. offers an Electrical Safety Awareness Program to all elementary schools in our service area.

A Festival Hydro employee delivers the electrical safety message to grade 5-6 students within their classroom environment. The interactive, hour-long presentation is offered over a select period of time spanning the end of January through the beginning of February.  This valuable message annually reaches approximately 700 students, with continued support from local schools.
