As I remember it you were in the NICEIC for at least some of the time you were in Bucks.

Take a look at this earlier version of the document you have referenced - any mention of NAPIT

Here.

And your point? Chip, chip! I was with NAPIT when authorised by the SSE and moved back in November 2009 to Scotland, to get more elbow room!

Anyone know one of the first things the fire brigade do at a serious house fire? i work with several retained fire fighters from time to time and i know what happens in practise, bearing in mind they won't know where the consumer unit is in most cases. Gary

I don't know about the UK, but here, Fire Control also call our Control Room, and the nearest authorised person who can attend is sent as well as the duty person to carry out isolations as required. We also do presentations to Fire & Rescue on electrical safety, and cover domestic, commercial, and high voltage sites, as well as HV and LV powerlines.

Regards,

Alan.

In my days working for Fire & Rescue looking after their infrastructure, the same system applied and I believe still does.

Appliance on scene would request "urgent attendance of electricity company for either internal or external wiring"

Internal was defined as inside the property, external was any overhead cabling attached to the property or likely to be affected by fire.

Recently a haystack fire a couple of miles from home resulted in a HV shutdown as the thoughtful farmer had built it in the same corner of his field as a pole transfomer

Thats reassuring. sorry mate, we can't turn the water on until the bloke from the electric company comes and turns the power off.

I'm glad things have improved since I was called out to a fire to disconnect the supply at a fire in the 60's. No engineers apparently were available (I was part of the emergency team on EEB), so without thinking (no improvement there!), I just dived into the burning building to pull the main fuse - didn't need a torch, the flames provided good lighting! Timber buildings do burn well (and quickly!).
