Meet Nosey! Part of a new natural gas safety kit available for your classroom use.
Developed in collaboration with the Northeast Gas Association, the “Being Nosey Can Keep You Safe” program provides all of the resources necessary to teach natural gas safety. “Nosey,” a fun and memorable character, helps guide teachers and students as they learn about being safe around natural gas. The educational kits, designed for grades 1 through 5, contain teacher’s guides, posters, take-home pamphlets, peel and smell stickers, and a link to a 60-second video. Each kit contains enough supplies for ten classrooms of 30 students each! RG&E is offering these kits to schools within the RG&E service area at no charge – please send your request by clicking on the link above and completing the online form.
