REMC hosts safety demo for scouts

Posted on Jun 25 2019 in Orange County REMC

On May 9, Orange County REMC coordinated a hotline demonstration for 16 scouts and 11 adults from various local groups. Attendees included Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana Troops 1759 from Orleans and 6175 from Paoli, as well as Cub Scout Packs 3387 from Springs Valley and 381 from Paoli. 

The guests also enjoyed snacks and took home energy efficiency kits provided by Hoosier Energy. 

If your community or school group would benefit from a safety demo, please contact Orange County REMC.

During the demo, REMC’s Michael Newlin uses a metal pole to show how electricity arcs from high voltage lines to find a path to ground.
