The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has called on the public to be cautious in using electricity during the yuletide to help ensure accident-free celebrations.

Richard Mac-Ekor, Ho District Manager of the ECG said the hazards associated with improper electricity use were more likely during the yuletide and could ruin the celebrations for entire households and communities. All must therefore help ensure safe consumption.

The District Manager made the call while sending season’s greetings to customers and the public.

“We have to manage our celebrations during the yuletide and be mindful that electricity can shorten our happiness if we don’t follow principles,” he said, reminding all of the need to switch off all gadgets and appliances when leaving homes and other premises.

He said the ECG is working round the clock throughout the period to ensure uninterrupted supply, and that although major offices took their annual breaks, vital sections including the faults and the various vending points remained operational.

The District Manager wished the public a happy season and advised citizens to limit alcohol consumption to be able to “identify electrical hazards and avoid them.

“Despite a challenging year, we have hope because of His (Christ) birth,” he said.

Mrs Patience Amuzu, Volta Regional President of the Power Queens Club of the ECG, also called on citizens to “make merry with caution,” and said women should ensure electrical appliances receive the needed attention to prevent hazards and accidents.
