Kids safety zone

We use electricity for things like: lighting, heating, appliances, computers, telephones and games. You cannot see it, but it's always there. Just imagine what it would be like to live in a world with no electricity.

Electricity is all around us - it provide us with a source of energy to power our everyday lives. Items like computers, street lights, mobile phones, your fridge and even the trains in our cities are powered by electricity. When we come into contact with electricity in ways we were not meant to be it can be very dangerous. Staying safe around electricity is everyone's responsibility. You should watch out for yourself, your friends and your family.
