I searched for a local electrician last week.
Then, I came across this marvellous website called eec247, and found my new electrician, Sean Quinn.
I’m so impressed by this website that I’m keen to share it with you.
I don’t normally read electronic and electrical manuals, but I’m truly amazed by this highly educational website. Perhaps the website should be renamed “Electricity for dummies”.
The most useful information is the Guide to deal with an emergency. It contains images and clear explanations. You’ll now know what to do in an electrical crisis.
Better still, you scroll down to the end of the page, and you can download the guide in a pdf format.
What’s a batten holder, 13A plug, flex outlet, lintel and megger? I’m at a loss, but don’t panic. Sean has provided a glossary of electrical terms to educate you.
My favourite section is a typical disaster story called Kevin’s story.
“Kevin, armed with a copy of the Reader’s Digest DIY manual, added a socket in his kitchen over the weekend.
Kevin can turn his hand to anything and works as a handyman where he “Does Electrics” for people too.”
What happens to Kevin? You’ll find out.
There’s also a gallery called rogues gallery. It means, “Don’t try these at home.”
I hope you find the information on Sean’s website useful. Next time, before you call an electrician, you can use the information to guide you to analyse the problems. You’ll become more informed.

Have you heard of this song, Dumb ways to die? It’s absolutely entertaining.
