He doesn't look it, but Linny the Lineman has been around a while. How many years? Linny won’t say but, since some turtles live to be 175, he’s obviously been playing it safe a long time. We do know that Linny’s free summer day camp program celebrated its 30th year in 2019. Each year, Palmetto Electric hosts Safety Days, a summer safety program, for children in southern Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties. Typically, these camps are held at local Boys and Girls Clubs and recreation centers. Unfortunately, for the past two years, we were unable to meet in person due to COVID-19.
While we weren’t able to join you again in person this year, we were pleased to host the 2nd Annual Virtual Safety Days program, held July 20-22. During the 2021 Virtual Safety Days program, we featured safety videos and activities for children online here at our website, as well as our social media channels including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
Each day, July 20-22, we posted videos highlighting topics like electrical safety, wildlife safety, beach and water safety, storm safety, fire safety and heat safety. Fun activities were also posted to go along with the videos each day. You can find these videos and activities in the 'Play It Safe' Kids Zone.
Below, you will find some photos from Safety Days presentations of the past. We hope to join you in person next year!
