Don Smith, foreground, and Carl Randall (photo above left) check a map of Payson to locate evacuation personnel in order to effectively evacuate people from town in an emergency. They are part of the Pine-Strawberry Fire Department Emergency Task Force and work closely with the Gila County Sheriff's Office in emergencies.

Simulating what happens when someone puts an object into a light socket, APS electrician Kent Echols generates a strong arch of electricity. Echols, throws the switch and turns the power on to fry a hot dog and a grapefruit to demonstrate what electricity can do to the human body when contact is made.

The demonstrations took place during emergency preparedness session Saturday.
