Ameren Illinois holds electric safety demonstration in Decatur

DECATUR - Ameren Illinois taught children about electric safety at a special safety demonstration in Decatur Thursday morning.

The event was held at 9:00 a.m. in front of the Kirkland Fine Arts Center at Millikin University, and Stacey Young of Ameren Illinois was on hand to perform the safety demonstration using their "My Safe City" display.

The demonstration model allowed children to view a variety of contact hazards with overhead and underground service.  A bucket truck was also on hand so that the children were able to ask a lineman questions.
