High Voltage

At Claverack, safety first not only applies to our employees but to our members as well. Because of our commitment to safety, we have constructed a high voltage safety demonstration to educate the public of potential hazards associated with any electrical distribution system in and around the communities we serve.

The thirty minute high voltage safety demonstration illustrates the dangers associated with downed power lines, common misconceptions about one’s personal safety around power lines, and includes electrical contact simulations. We also demonstrate the dangers associated with improperly connecting a portable generator to an electrical service. Electrical arc flashes and faults illustrate the potentially fatal power present in all electrical lines. This presentation will leave a lasting impression!

These safety demonstrations can be presented at county fairs, schools and civic organizations. Presentations are considered by request. The demonstration can be tailored to all ages. If you are interested in this safety demonstration, please give our operations department a call at 1-800-326-9799 or 570-265-2167.

Everyone should remember the following:

Treat ALL conductors as if they are energized.

Keep a safe distance from downed power lines.

Report all power problems as soon as possible.
