Safe-T-Opolis, a free, interactive program offered by Alabama Power, has been a staple elective for fourth-graders throughout the state for 34 years. Using a tabletop model of a city charged with 11,000 volts, students learn how to stay safe around electricity. When COVID-19 put a stop to in-person programs in schools, the shift to virtual presentations allowed Safe-T-Opolis to continue.

Since October 2020, 201 programs have been presented, reaching 6,196 students across Alabama. More than 170 additional programs are in development for the spring.

“Safe-T-Opolis is an engaging program that helps us effectively educate students on electrical safety,” said Kim Savage, Alabama Power’s public safety program manager. “We are thankful to the schools who have decided to continue the program, and we are hopeful that more schools will sign up throughout the year.”
