Electricity usage guidelines
The guidelines in this document apply to all of the event participants, both for those in theme camps, and those free camping - including RVs.
Theme camps will be connected to the grid 1-3 days before the event to allow verification of the licensing standards.
General safety guidelines for setup and use of electricity systems
Double insulated wires should be used for connecting any electrically powered systems.
All of the connections should be used using standard cables, splitters, outlets and plugs only.
Electrical cables should not be placed exposed on the ground. Electrical cables/systems should be either 2.5 meters above ground or buried.
Damaged electrical cables should not be used.
Electrical systems should not be connected using exposed wires.
No heavy equipment should be placed on the electrical cables to avoid damaging them.
Electrical systems should not be placed closer than 3 meters to natural gas systems, fire or any heat source.
In the discovery of a damaged or exposed cable, the use of electricity should be stopped until the cable is replaced.
The use of electricity should be stopped in any case of heat up of cables/plugs or outlets or melting of cables/plugs/outlets, until the inspection of a certified inspector.
Do not extinguish with water a fire caused by an electrical short. Extinguish the fire using a dry powder fire extinguisher that has a valid expiration date.
Touch a person that was electrocuted only with isolator materials such as plastic/wooden sticks, while disconnecting the electricity system.
