They create awareness of safety and energy conservation
Students of various schools took out a rally to create an awareness of safety and energy conservation as part of a programme organised by TANGEDCO here on Thursday.
Superintending Engineer N. Narayanan flagged off the rally. It commenced from a place near Rajaji Park on Palayamkottai Road. The students, who carried placards highlighting steps to avoid risk of electric shock, proceeded through WGC Road, Balavinayagar Kovil Road, Devarpuram Road and concluded near the park.
They advised the people not to touch disconnected power cables and inform the TANGEDCO immediately. People should not stand near electric poles during rain and electronic gadgets should be switched off during lightning and thunderstorm.
Executive Engineer V. Thennarasu, Assistant Executive Engineer, M. Venkateswaran and students from BMC School, APC Veerabahu School and St. Mary’s School took part in the campaign.
