“How We Stay Safe Around Electricity” is now available at no cost to school children in PPL’s 29-county service territory.

The 28-page illustrated book, meant for a fourth-grade audience, explains how electricity works and offers electricity-related lessons such as staying away from downed wires and calling 811 before digging.

PPL Electric Utilities has distributed more than 20,000 copies of the book across its service territory.

The books are available to schools located in PPL’s service territory on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

The company also has sponsored electrical safety-themed theater programs in schools across its service territory, reaching more than 70,000 children and it provides electrical safety lessons through demonstrations with its Live Line Electrical Safety Exhibit.
