[ARCHIVED] Live Line Electrical Safety Exhibit Presented by PPL Electric Utilities

Live Line Electrical Safety Exhibit

On April 22nd at 6:30 p.m. in the Manheim Township Ambulance Association's parking lot located at 1820 Municipal Drive, PPL Electric Utilities will present its mobile electrical safety exhibit to teach first responders, contractors, businesses, school students and the general public how to stay safe around electricity.

The exhibit is a scaled-down 7200-volt electrical distribution system that was developed and built by PPL workers and features live electrical wires, utility poles, and transformers.

Using ladders, gloves, shovels and other tools in a controlled environment, trained PPL staff wearing protective equipment will show the spark, flames, smoke and crackle that occur when those items come in contact with live electrical lines.
