Michelle Petrusevich, Public Safety Manager
As part of our Public Safety Program we want to build relationships and work with teachers across B.C. to help educate our students about natural gas and electricity — where it comes from, how to use and conserve it and, most importantly, how to be safe around it.
Energy is Awesome!
The Energy is Awesome natural gas and electricity presentations are designed to educate children, aged 8 to 11 or Grade 3 to 6, about natural gas and electricity safety and conservation.
The program is delivered to schools located within 500 metres of a right of way and to schools and community children's groups upon request. Students will receive activity books and other educational materials. As a thank-you, teachers and group leaders will receive a $25 gift certificate for Scholastic Books.
Visit the Energy is Awesome website for online games and activities.
High School Awareness Campaign
Looking for something to share with your students? FortisBC is currently developing a public safety awareness campaign for high schools students. To kick start this campaign, students of Vancouver’s Cinematheque Education Department have produced five short films to convey FortisBC’s natural gas and electric safety messages with a fun twist to engage their peers.
To help us develop and continually improve our high school program to meet your needs and those of your students, we want your input.
