    Not us -we weren't there. Haven't got any biz out of the Pavilion yet (not for a lack of trying).

    As I recall our last lost bid was for the thermal scan.

    At least the area had a fire extinguisher handy
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Yep, I was about to say, the fire extinguisher looks like it never got used anyway.

    would you take a chance and walk in front of that panel to get it...chances are the explosion from the wires shorting out once the insulation was melted would be great enough to blow you thru a brick wall...so chances that even if you had a arc flash suit on wouldnt even save you...just something to think about...if you ever walk in front of an electrical panel on fire.

    by the way what i saw happen to a wall mounted part of a split a/c unit...i would rather clear the room...when they explode they literally fly thru the air.

    i didnt want to say it but you will surprised at how many customers are entertainted at strip clubs...one of the reasons i believe what is good for the goose is good for the gander...so long as you dont complain when the gardener or garden srvice is is servicing more than the flower garden at home...eeeeish let stop right here.
