    BTW what 'wares' am I selling?!
    See, I was going to just agree with Paul. But instead, I must say George, you are just being a plain old *******.

    Anybody notice the electric meter is still on this house, our policy dictates we remove the meter before entering.

    Georgie You need to lighten up a little! This is just gentle firehouse humour! You bring a great deal to these forums and your knowledge in certain aspects offers a great contribution and opportunity for us all to learn. Occasionally your comments appear misplaced (I am sure you will accuse me of the same)!

    Thing is George, I don't take any of this stuff personally and I don't think you should either. Lighten up and smile a bit more mate.

    Firechoker (or anyone with an answer), why do you take off the meter before going in?

    Some departments are no longer allowed to pull meters. Flipping the main breaker usually accomplishes the same thing. Usually.

    My old dept wasn't.We tripped the main breaker,shut off the gas and water and made sure that the electric company was en route at the same time.

    We shut off the gas and pull the meters on all working fires. Most of the time we still cut off the main breaker just incase pulling the meter doesn't kill the power.
