    January 24, 2022 - Balochistan Times


      Superintending engineer, Multan Electric Power Company (Mepco), Muzaffargarh circle, Malik Muhammad Yousuf urged the people on Saturday to stay away from electricity installations during rainy season for their safety.

      In a statement issued here, the SE said that people from rural as well as urban areas should avoid their presence under the transformers, wire conductors, and do not park their vehicles there. They should avoid presence or those of their cattle heads near electric poles, touching them or any other installation, avoid using metal wire to dry up their clothes, and do not touch any switch, wire or appliances when their hands, shoe or clothes are wet. He said that touching metallic water pipes and their use in any way should also be avoided.

      Engineer Muhammad Yousuf said that construction of structure, setting stalls or hand carts under high voltage wire conductors was not only illegal but also pose threat to life of the people. He asked people to convey information regarding any emergency to concerned sub division, division or Mepco customer service center/complaint center. Yousuf also advised Mepco field staff to wear all accessories and opt for all precautions before rectifying faults in the installations for their safety. He also laid emphasis on enforcement of novel coronavirus SOPs at all Mepco offices and installations.
