November 9, 2012 – The International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) tells us the State of New York is in need of qualified electrical inspectors to assist in confirming it is safe to re-energize buildings that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

They are requesting that electrical inspectors with a minimum of five years of experience who are interested in helping should email their contact information to iaei@iaei.org and put “New York Disaster Response” in the Subject line.

This response should include:

• Name
• Address
• Phone
• Brief outline of experience (IAEI inspector certification at the residential level is the preferred minimum)

Anyone available to assist will be contacted directly by a local jurisdiction within the State of New York, and those jurisdictions will enter into agreements with the inspectors regarding compensation and expenses.

Here is current code information for the area:

Adopted Code: 2008 National Electrical Code. As of December 2010, New York State has adopted the 2008 NEC for both residential and non-residential construction.

Adoption type: State-wide. All local jurisdictions, with the exception of New York City, are required to adopt and enforce the code. New York City has its own code.

* Note that volunteers do not represent IAEI, and IAEI does not represent any jurisdiction or entity that is requesting assistance.
