SGI ROLLOVER SIMULATOR -For every two people who die in an auto collision where they were not wearing a seatbelt, one would have lived had they taken the time to buckle up. SGI is driving home the message of how seatbelts save lives with its traffic safety tool, a rollover simulator. The rollover simulator is a cab of a vehicle with a motorized encasement mounted on top. The encasement rolls the cab, simulating a rollover incident. Straw-filled dummies are used to show the effectiveness of seatbelts by simulating a rollover with them belted and then with them unbelted. SGI has partnered with the RCMP to take the simulator on the road.
SASKPOWER HIGH VOLTAGE DISPLAY - Demonstrations include simulated power outages, power restoration and energized farm equipment. An unforgettable highlight for farming audiences is seeing a mini grain auger contact the fully-charged 14.4 kV line, and then seeing what happens if they in turn touch the auger.
The Redvers Arts Centre Committee will be serving a hot beef Lunch from 11:30 -1:30. Come out and support them raise money for a new projector. As well the Brownies will again be selling their delicious pies.
