Default What is an "ohm"?

Just kidding! Hello fellas, been in the trade since 93, got hired as a professional firefighter along the way. Now I am working towards my contractors license. Learning a few things here, hopefully I will be able to contribute something useful!

Interesting that you are a professional firefighter and wanting to open your own electrical contracting business. I know of two firefighters in my town where one owns his own roofing company and the other owns his own carpet laying company.

Both are quite successful, hope to see you around for awhile Harbinger.
