For the Teacher’s Day IDGC of Centre — Belgorodenergo division organized a campaign “Lesson as a gift”, giving teachers and schoolchildren on the eve of holiday a cycle of lessons on prevention of children’s electrical injuries.

And the main idea of these lessons — fostering a culture of safe handling of electricity in the home, safety in the street, and next to power facilities.
