Public Safety Outreach

Duke Energy launched a comprehensive outreach and education campaign in 2007 to promote public safety and educate people on how to avoid the dangers of electricity and natural gas. The project was a joint effort between Duke Energy’s public safety team and various vendors.

As part of the outreach campaign, a safety training kit was created for outside contractors, emergency response agencies and schools. Nearly 80,000 kits containing a safety brochure and poster were distributed. The kits also included information on how to receive additional safety booklets, equipment decals and a DVD/CD containing a video, PowerPoint slide show, presenter notes and a trainer’s guide.

Duke Energy also uses bill inserts on safety to reach customers. Radio ads promote electric and natural gas safety, complementing safety demonstrations. We reached more than 11,000 individuals with face-to-face presentations.
