Kostroma power engineers of IDGC of Centre had a lesson on electrical safety for the recreational camp "Red Hill". Along with Kostromaenergo the organizers of the action "Way to Success" were traffic police officers of the Kostroma region, the General Directorate of the Russian Emergencies Ministry in the Kostroma region, and the Kostroma regional branch of the All-Russian Voluntary Fire Organization. The action was attended by children from 8 to 17 years of age from all districts of the Kostroma region.
The event took place in the form of a routing game with stations, at each of which the children had to test their knowledge of basic safety rules and to show them in practice. As it turned out, almost all the children knew how to properly behave near electric facilities, how to use electrical appliances in the home, what signs warn of the danger of electric shock. In addition, at the station "Electrical Safety" the participants had to work not only mentally, but also physically. The children under the guidance of a safety engineer of Kostromaenergo Alexey Andreev performed primary resuscitation at a dummy for the salvation of a man with electric shock.
"In my opinion, the fact that the children were able to "revive" the simulator Gosha is important first of all to them. During the resuscitation the children forgot that it was just a doll. And the stronger was their pride and joy when Gosha had pulse. The children not only felt how hard to bring people back to life, but once again sensed how important it was to help each other," sums up the lesson Alexey Andreev.
"Safety" games at the stations have long been a traditional form of cooperation of Kostroma power engineers and operational services of the Kostroma region. They allow in an accessible way to give children a comprehensive knowledge of safety in everyday life. Children are happy to absorb new information and presenting it in the form of a game is much better absorbed.
Since the beginning of 2014 experts of IDGC of Centre - Kostromaenergo division conducted electrical lessons at more than 200 educational institutions in the city and region. More than 9,000 children and adolescents learned the rules of electricity safety.
