5 Electrical Safety Tips For This Rainy Season

Safety tips for the rainy season on VTpass

While the rainy season this year may seem to have arrived earlier than usual, we are very glad that the hot air has been lifted.

Marked with increased rainfall, thunderstorms, high winds, and flood, the rainy season could see a lot of electrical accidents, especially since water is a good conductor of electricity.

However, that informs the need for us to pay more attention to safety when dealing with electrical appliances this season.

Here are a few electrical safety tips you may need in this rainy season:

  1. Stay away from Flooded Areas:

Everyone is adviced to stay indoor or to find the closest shelter in the event of rain or storm.  But if you have to go out, it would be wise to avoid flooded areas, especially those close to heavy electrical equipment.

2. Stay away from power lines during a storm:

The human body is a ready conductor of electricity and as such,  It is advised that you stay at least 10 feet away from a power line and anything touching it.

The proper way to move away from the line is to shuffle away with small steps, keeping your feet together and on the ground at all times. This way, it will minimize the potential for a strong electric shock.

3. Never leave Cut Wires astray:

In cases where you have wires on the floor or lying on the road in your area, it will be wise to either get a DisCo official to reconnect or safely tuck away the wires before the event of a rainstorm.

These wires may cause severe electrical hazards if they come in contact with water (provided current is flowing through the wire).

4. Avoid outdoor electrical tasks during rainfall:

Avoid high altitude during rainfall, as that presents a real danger of being struck by lightning – especially when climbing poles.

Never attempt electrical chores if you are not a trained engineer but if you have to, avoid doing this under the rain.

5. Take caution when close to Water:

Never touch anything electrical with wet hands or bare feet, always use caution when operating electrical appliances near water sources and all appliances.

Remember that your correct meter number must be supplied when buying prepaid electricity.

WHY ARE TOKENS NOT SENT IMMEDIATELY?

At VTpass, our ultimate priority is making sure our customers get the services they pay for when they need it. Our online payment platform, www.vtpass.com, is right on hand to do just this. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, customers get to conveniently pay for everyday services. And these services range from electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions to airtime and data subscriptions. So, many go on to pay for electricity bills in their comfort and also get to receive their tokens immediately via email and SMS. But then, some tokens don’t come in as fast as they should. Hence, it would be good we get to know why tokens do not come in immediately in these rare cases.

Well, it should be known firsthand that www.vtpass.com as an online payment platform is not in anyway responsible for the generation of tokens. The electricity distribution companies are, at the most, responsible for the token generation. And so, www.vtpass.com is hardly responsible for the delay in token generations. The delay in a token generation is mostly due to two factors.

SERVICE BREAKDOWN

electricity,vtpass,tokenOnce a while, the service operations of the electricity DISCOS might experience a slight, temporary breakdown which might delay the generation of tokens to customers. What this inadvertently means is that any sort of transaction with the affected DISCO through offline channels will also be virtually suspended for the period of breakdown.

However, when this occasional breakdown occurs, VTpass always does make sure it gets a fix as soon as possible. Through our several correspondences with the DISCOS, our customers get to receive their tokens as soon as the DISCO’s issues are resolved. Also, we keep constant conversations with our customers through the various support channels. Hence, you can reach us through our contact, email and live chat. And you can simply follow us on Twitter @vtpass.

BAD NETWORK

tokenSo, this is yet another reason why tokens generation might come with a delay. As these tokens come in through email and SMS, the availability of the network come to bear on its transmission. So that a bad, fluctuating network might cause a delay in a token generation.

Any which way, VTpass has proven over time to be a simple and sure way of settling bills quickly. Just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can pay your electricity bills, DSTV,  STARTIMES AND GOTV subscriptions in record time. Also, you get to buy your MTN, GLO, AIRTEL and 9MOBILE airtime and data on this platform. This is apart from the many ways you can share and earn money on VTpass. VTpass is a reverent planet on its own. But then, it’s still part of an entire cosmos, an entire world. Away from the many irregularities in the world, we have made our planet as comfortable and convenient as possible. Why don’t you come in to have an experience of a lifetime?

WORLD SAVINGS DAY- How to keep up with your savings goal

One exciting part of childhood, you would remember, was having a piggy bank to throw in. It was a common trend amongst children who got stipends from their relatives. And it was quite a fun thing, saving for some rainy day which of course was nothing much. But then, growing up brings with it a lot of responsibilities. world saving dayAnd we inadvertently find ourselves spending more than we keep. Well, every October 31st is world savings day. And we should take out today to reflect on just how and why we should up our saving flair.

So yes, we all do not hope for a sore time in our lives. But then, things happen. And what we have stowed away is what keeps us on our toes for those times we need that extra back up and support. But then, there are more reasons why we need to save: 

  • To start up a business
  • For some short-term purpose like catering for a ceremony
  • For long-term purposes like building a land or house

And yes, you can save to take care of daily expenses. Rather than spending randomly, money can be kept aside to cater for your everyday services like phone airtime and data subscriptions.

It is quite hard to cut down on the few luxuries we allow ourselves like the extra packs of chocolate or home appliances we could just as well avoid.

Now, there is the need to embrace the mindset that every little penny counts. Hence, we should be conscientious of how we spend and why we spend. And what better way to keep in this mindset than by making a list of what you need before you get on to buy them.

3. Learn to be forgetful

Our passports, ATM Cards, lipsticks, identity cards, movie tickets,  these are part of what our wallet contains.

But there is one thing we must not fail to mention- money. Subsequently, money is one very important thing featured in our wallet. But without doubt, though the wallet is for safe keeping, it is usually the very thing we misplace most. This can be due to our own carelessness and forgetfulness. It can also be due to theft, which is usually the most common situation. This is justification enough for the not too recent cashless policy that now is a global practice.

Maybe you still carry cash around in your physical wallet because you see it as an extra burden having to deposit, withdraw, transfer etc. And worse still, it can be stressful having to queue at the ATM stand. This is especially annoying when you need the money to pay for a service.
