i have a problem with the "exepmt buildings also. in my area, buildings that are owned by the county but are located in the city are exempted from all building inspections. however, when there is a fire in one of those exempted building, the city fire department has to respond . i think thats a dump rule... if you do not want building inspections, you sould have your own fire and police services to answer the calls.

I work for a city governmnet. Technically we are supposed to inspect ourselves (like that will ever happen). From plugs and fixtures danleling from their wires to breaker panels designed with exposed busses on the front (sorry they won't let me take pictures) I have seen much to inspire fear. Every once an a while they get a saftey rumble from the state OSHA office but it never seems to amount to anything. If you want to see something really scary, check out your inspector's office wiring someday.
SD It is best for a leader to be both feared and loved. But since this usually cannot be done, it is safer to be feared.

Joe, is this entity a Federal entity? If so, they are exempt from any local (state, county, city) inspection processes. Should they get inspections? Certainly. Looks like time to spread the word about electrical safety within the federal government. Don't beat anyone over the head, just make your point, which I am sure you of all people can do.
