Bill’s POV: Fire Fighters and Electrical Safety!

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC shares electrical hazard training video with an inside view of what firefighters encounter electrically speaking when they enter a burning building. Bill says that what is discussed in this video is just an example of some of the dangers that our fire fighters are exposed to in every structure they enter that is on fire and the importance of continued training that is so essential for their safety and well being for our benefit.

Bill also says that this is also an example of why our National Electrical Codes are getting considerably more strict in emphasizing life safety devices and expanding the locations in which they are required to help prevent fires and save lives. Examples such as Arc Fault Circuit Interruptors (AFCIs), which are fairly new (about 12 years) slowly being implemented to protect more and more of residential structures with each code; additional requirements for GFCI protection such as a hard wired pool motors; and of course, the smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and tamper resistant receptacles are all saving lives and protecting people from injury. Our National Electrical Code is written by the National Fire Protection Agency who reviews fire department reports and investigation reports on causes of death and injury and works together with the National Electrical Manufacturer’s Association and other groups to develop and implement these new technologically advanced products, well worth the price to save one from a serious injury or even one’s life.
