Gunnison County Electric Association (GCEA) strongly believes that electrical safety is everyone’s business. GCEA has developed electric safety programs suitable for all residents in our community. Programs are available for children in our schools, local civic groups, EMS, fire, and law enforcement. These programs are free of charge, and all are encouraged to take advantage.
Call GCEA at (970) 641-3520 to schedule your electrical safety presentation. Together, we can all learn to live safely with electricity.
Teaching Students About Electricity
There’s an app for that! From nuclear power plants to solar-powered homes, the Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid’s free app, Tesla Town, allows young students to explore and learn about different energy sources used for electricity production today.
Telsa Town is aimed at teaching students in third through eighth grade about electricity generation and delivery.
Tesla Town is available to download for free from the iTunes App Store, Google Play app store, and is also available on the web at the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium website.
High Voltage Demonstration Trailer
GCEA has a high voltage demonstration trailer that can be used as an educational tool to show just how dangerous it may be to come into contact with high voltage wires. If your classroom or community group would like to see a live exhibition that will teach safety while making a lasting impression, call GCEA at (970) 641-3520 to schedule a free demonstration.
