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 Energyís 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 trainerís 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.
