Free Program for First Responders
Alabama Power’s new high voltage safety program, called Safe-T-Zone, was designed with first responders in mind and with input from the Alabama Fire College. This custom built trailer generates 14,400 volts and uses both primary and secondary voltage to demonstrate potential dangers of overhead and underground power lines.
Safe-T-Zone is presented by Alabama Power lineman and covers a variety of topics like the consequences of pulling a meter at a house fire, what to do when encountering downed lines, and how to handle outages during a disaster. The program is presented outside and concludes with a Q&A section hosted by our licensed and experienced lineman.
Safe-T-Zone is ideal for firefighters, police officers and volunteer firefighters. We need at least a few weeks’ lead time, so contact us today to schedule your group.
At Alabama Power, we value the health and safety of our employees, business partners and the public. Due to the coronavirus, we have temporarily halted our Safe-T-Zone programs in person. We are offering DVDs of the program to teach about the importance of safety around electricity. If you are interested, please fill out this form. The DVD will be yours to keep and it is provided for free, as a public service of Alabama Power.
Alabama Power continues to seek alignment with the most current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance pertaining to COVID-19.
Safety remains our top priority and we hope you’ll take advantage of this free safety lesson until the time that we are able to resume presenting live Safe-T-Zone programs.
