EEC addresses timely energy safety

and efficiency issues:

Safe Electricity’s campaign on electric shock drowning (ESD) included a Chicago news conference during National Safe Boating Week in May. Kevin and Sheryl Ritz shared the experience of losing their son to this silent killer, and were joined by a Coast Guard officer and Safe Electricity program leader who discussed efforts to prevent these tragedies. This is coverage by WMAQ-TV (NBC) Chicago.

The danger could not be seen but was silently lurking in the water of the marina where Lucas and the kids were swimming. Electricity was leaking into the water from a boat plugged in to shore power. Lucas was killed when he swam into the energized water. Unfortunately, people are killed each year by what's now known as electric shock drowning (ESD).
