The Importance of Electricians
Ever since Benjamin Franklin went outside with
his kite during a thunderstorm, electricity has ruled the world. All you have to
do to understand this is to remember what it was like the last time your power
went out for an evening. Nothing worked. No computer, no refrigerator and more
importantly, no TV. Electricity runs everything important in our lives and when
it malfunctions, somebody has to fix it, somebody who knows what they�re doing,
that is. Electricity has the power to run things when it works smoothly, but, it
can also burn things and kill people if misused. Of all the household accidents
in this country, home electrical repairs ranks second in accidents right behind
falling off ladders - only home electrical repair accidents are more deadly than
falling off ladders.
Good electricians are highly trained individuals with a lot of schooling and
practical experience behind them. Before you go sticking your hand into a fuse
box, or rewiring the house for power, you have to know a lot about electrical
power � the way it moves, how it does what it does, the math and physics behind

it up, plug it in and somehow it all works without any sparks or problems and
you feel like you could have been an electrician if you�d really wanted to.
Wrong. There is a world of difference between plugging things in and being an
To begin with the body of mathematics behind electrical work is impressive.
Electricity is measured in volts and is a function of voltage, current and
resistance - all factors with a complex mathematical relationship. There are
laws, not the building codes set in place by municipal governments to insure the
safety of houses and commercial buildings, but mathematical laws proven with
chalkboards of bizarre looking figures that prove how electricity will function
under different circumstances. And there are unions. In fact the Electrical
Workers Union (EWU) is one of the strongest unions in America protecting the
integrity of the profession from scammers and schemers.
