This photo shows what is supposed to be a light fixture. Now, this is likely in a residential building, like a house, but it is still something that will cause a fire.
Now, let’s say that you get a call for an “odor of” or something similar that makes you check the attic. You pop open the hatch and here you have this.
Depending on your jurisdiction, what do you do? What leverage, if any, do have to correct this right away? It is a tough spot for us as firefighters and company officers.
Let us know how you would handle this and what actions you would take to correct this to the best of your level of responsibility.
Stay safe and be careful.
Thanks again to Captain Jeff Schwering from St. Louis County. Great stuff.
