We had the opportunity to gain some valuable knowledge from our local electric utility company at a recent training. They provided answers to questions with professional and expert recommendations. First, I’ll review some terminology through pictures. Second, I’ll list a series of questions that were asked of the utility company personnel and their answers. Lastly, I’ll review several fireground tasks that are controversial or potentially dangerous. At no point during this post am I giving you fail proof advice and you should always err on the side of caution when dealing with electrical emergencies. Seek expert consultation from your local utility company when in doubt.
Pass it on!
