Electric & Natural Gas Safety Education
The goal of electric and gas safety education is to help students recognize hazardous situations. To meet this goal, students must be shown these situations in a variety of ways over the course of several years. Teachers like the materials because they develop standards-based reading, writing, math skills using electric & gas safety as the content.
