Waterloo North Hydro is pleased to offer safety presentations about electricity to all elementary schools in Waterloo, Wellesley and Woolwich. You'll also see us at community events showing you how to be safe around electricity.

Making electrical safety fun and interesting for primary and secondary students is important. Young children can learn to have a healthy respect for electricity and spot potential electrical hazards wherever they may be.
