Electricity and natural gas are safe when used properly but can pose a danger if you and your children don’t know basic safety.
Teach your children energy safety
Remember Mr. Ouch
Mr. Ouch is a sticker or sign attached to electric utility equipment — usually green transformer boxes — that warns children and adults of hazardous voltage. So, when you see a Mr. Ouch sign, stay away, and tell others around the area to do the same.
Your nose knows
Natural gas smells like rotten eggs. If you smell natural gas, do not use a light switch or even a telephone. Get everyone out of the house and call We Energies for help.
Learn to use electricity and natural gas safely and wisely by using games and information on a website made for kids, parents and teachers.
