In the case of an after hour EMERGENCY repair that requires an electrical inspection :
You will have to get an emergency wiring statement from the lineman on site that is disconnecting power or have it printed out from the website
You will have to find a qualified approved electrician for your county to perform the repairs (you can find a list for each county at the bottom of this page)
Members will have the qualified approved electrician make all repairs and sign off on the emergency wiring statement (signature MUST be legible)
Send the paper via email to email@example.com or give to a lineman when they arrive on site
Once the signature has been verified, the lineman will restore power. NOTE: If the signature is not legible or if the electrician is not on the list of “qualified approved” electricians we will not be able to restore power without an inspection
Members will have 3 business days to contact their county inspector and schedule an electrical inspection
Click here to download the Emergency Wiring Statement. Before electricity may be furnished, this certificate must be completed in its entirety and returned to SCI REMC.
This emergency wiring statement may only be used for EMERGENCY repairs AFTER HOURS or when the county inspector in unavailable. This form MAY NOT be used for new service requests, planned work, or other non-emergency scenarios.
All electricians must be on the approved list of qualified electricians for the county where work is performed.
This list is provided to SCI REMC by the county inspectors. Please contact the appropriate county representatives for information on how to be added to this list.
If your county does not appear on this list, it is because we have not received a list of qualified approved electricians from your county inspector and you will have to wait for reconnect until it has been green tagged by your county inspector.
