Despite the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) is continuously giving safety tips to the public.
“Delikado ang pagdaan sa ilalim ng tore ng kuryente na may hawak na kawayan o anumang mahabang bagay na maaaring sumabit sa linya. Maaari itong magresulta sa pagkamatay, at pagkawala ng kuryente sa inyong lugar”, according to safety bulletin from NGCP relayed by Corporate Regional Communication Officer Fely Francisco.
“Ipinagbabawal ang pagtatanim at pagpuputol ng puno o anumang halaman sa ilalim ng linya ng kuryente. Delikado ito sa iyong buhay, at maaaring sanhi ng di inaasahang kawalan ng kuryente”, another NGCP bulletin warned.
Francisco earlier said they are constantly coordinating with Bataan local government units and barangays to promote transmission lines safety.
She assured that NGCP cares about the safety of the public as he urged all to help in maintaining a reliable, safe, and secure transmission system in the country.
