Electricity and Safety

Your safety is important to us. Electricity is so commonly used today, many of us never think about it. When properly used, electricity is a safe source of energy. However, if it is not used properly, it can have serious effects. For more information about electricity and safety, check the BELCO site in the section called Electrical Safety.
Kite Safety
In past years, one of the busiest days of the year for BELCO used to be Good Friday, as the traditional flying of kites wreaked havoc on the power supply. The multitudes of kites getting stuck in power lines was not only annoying for those whose electricity went out as a result, but dangerous for the person standing below pulling on the kite string.
To prevent such situations, BELCO makes a concerted effort to educate the public - and especially children - about the potential hazards of kite flying.
During the annual BELCO Kite Campaign in the month before Good Friday, the BELCO Kite Man and his assistant visit every Primary One and Two class on the Island. The presentation highlights a variety of issues including energy conservation and electricity safety. The presentation also focuses on how to build a safe Bermuda kite, where the safe kite-flying locations are and what to do if a kite gets stuck in a power line. Our Kiteman shows students the equipment he uses when working on an overhead power line and again goes over safety issues.
By visiting schools and speaking to young children, BELCO has been able to instill in the community the importance of safety when dealing with any type of electrical situation. As a result, there has been a steady decline in the number of kites caught in power lines and power outages caused by kites.
