More than a thousand youngsters from across Norwich will be taught the dangers of getting too close to electrical equipment during a week-long event at the Norfolk Showground.
A team from UK Power Networks, will use a specially-designed 'ghost box' story-telling device which features transparent, ghostly images to teach young people about the dangers of playing with electricity.
The tales include one about a boy who ignores warning signs and retrieves his ball from a substation, plus the dangers of climbing trees or carrying fishing rods near power lines.
The electricity safety lesson will be delivered as part of a 'Crucial Crew' event at the Dereham Road site in Norwich from September 18 to September 22.
Pupils from 23 Norwich schools will be taking part in a range of fun activities with a serious message from a variety of organisations headed by the Norfolk Fire Service.
