Energy safe presentation offered at ILES

IL-energy1

Representatives from the National Energy Foundation and Vectren gave a presentation Tuesday to Indian Lake Elementary School fourth-graders regarding energy and heating safety. They explained to students the difference between renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Pupils examined pieces of coal and simulated the non-renewable resources formed on the ocean floor. The representatives stressed keeping water heaters and furnaces clear of clutter, avoiding gas meters and calling 811 before digging in yards to locate possible pipelines.  Students also learned about the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning and the smell, sound and sight of a natural gas leak. They received energy safety booklets to take home as well.
