• 2017 TLC "Safe on the Bus"

    78 views 1 week ago
    On an April morning in 2016, Clint Shults was driving a school bus to take students to an FFA competition in Rangely, Colorado. The team’s horse judging coach, Silvia, followed the bus in her car. Heavy, wet snow had been accumulating, and the bus snagged a power line just as it was falling to the ground under the weight of the snow.

    “We started dragging power lines for the next at least 100 yards, and knew we were in pretty tough shape,” Clint says. From behind the bus, Silvia witnessed several bursts of fire.

    Fortunately, Clint, dispatch, and first responders knew the right steps to take to keep everyone safe. They are partnering with Safe Electricity’s “Teach Learn Care TLC” campaign so that others know how to stay safe if they ever find themselves in a similar situation.

    - Stay calm, and stay inside the vehicle.
    - Call 911.
    - Warn others to stay away from the vehicle.
    - Stay seated, and do not exit the vehicle until utility personnel say it is okay to do so.
    - If you must exit the vehicle because it is on fire, jump clear of it with your feet together and without touching the vehicle and ground at the same time. Keeping your feet together, shuffle or “bunny hop” to safety.

  • Teach, Learn, Care (TLC) Lucas Ritz Play all

    Boating and swimming are very popular, and safety precautions like life jackets are a given for millions of families who take to the water.

    So the Ritz family was stunned when their son Lucas was killed while swimming with his life jacket on and being closely supervised by his mother.

    The danger could not be seen but was silently lurking in the water of the marina where Lucas and the kids were swimming. Electricity was leaking into the water from a boat plugged in to shore power. Lucas was killed when he swam into the energized water. Unfortunately, people are killed each year by what's now known as electric shock drowning (ESD).

    The Ritz family is working with Safe Electricity's "Teach Learn Care TLC" campaign to help teach others from their tragic experience. They want others to learn how to avoid electric shock drowning and urge water enthusiasts not to swim in marinas or near docks with electrical service.

    If you have a boat or dock, help prevent electrical accidents by inspecting and maintaining all electrical systems on or near the water.
