People who have ignored this sort of advice before need to be warned again. Again and again until the message finally sinks in. No decent person wants harm to come to another. And it could come to that in the case of an electrical short-circuit. It catches you quite unawares. The fire spreads so rapidly that there is little you can do to save your property. Not even the local fire emergency service is going to make it on time.
And the sidewalk fire hydrant was not working in any case. Again. You are lucky to escape with your life. But you are left with no roof over your head. But tragically, it happens. Lives are lost. And as a result of that, no lessons can be learned from the tardy and irresponsible refusal to heed the sensible advice that may have already been given time and time again. Many people, in their irresponsible nature, are just so darn cheap.
They refuse to bear the costs electrical services the woodlands networks might be charging them. If they only took the time and trouble to find out how it actually operates, they would have found out that they would not have had to spend a dime. Because first-time electrical services inspections could come to your home or business free of charge. If there are those who insist on being paid upfront, then you need to be asking questions of them.
Actually, why bother. Just hook up with a qualified and registered electrician, fully insured and licensed to practice by the trade and governmental rules looking after your county. This has been free advice as well. And so it goes that you are now off to a good start if you have read right through to the end.
