Solar Rooftop fire concerns with regards to Water and Electricity during a fire or eartquake

Hello All,

Have any of you fire chiefs had issues with regard to fighting a fire on a commercial building with a Solar System on the roof. The water fighting of a rooftop Solar system no being able to turn the solar panel of does this create an issue of safety that you are not aware of. I am looking for a Fire Chief to present the industries concern at the SPI convention in October 2010. Please give me you comment or input in this area. Have any of the Chiefs had this experience.

Thank You
Stephen Cutler
