Electricity Safety, Troubleshooting and Other Information Safety Check Points

Please practice some basic rules to ensure your safe usage of electricity.

Do not use many appliances in one outlet at the same time

If you use many appliances in one outlet at the same time, it may cause overheating of the electric wires. If you wish to use more appliances, you must install additional outlets. Remember to always take precautions to keep your electric power supply safe and convenient. If you would like to increase the number of outlets, please ask a local private electrician to do so.

If you have something caught in the electric wires, never try to get it down yourself. Call the nearest Chubu Electric Power customer service office. Accidents happen when people try to climb electric poles.
