Safety is our first priority. To promote electric safety in the Miami Valley, DP&L offers our Think Hot! Stay Safe! program.

The presentation features DP&L employees who will discuss electric safety (can be made specific to the audience), answer questions and give a demonstration of the power of electricity. The demonstration is optional. If you would like a demonstration, please ensure your location meets the demonstration requirements listed below the video before making a request.
