DANGER – fires and explosions

Unlike mechanical analog meters, smart meters are electrical and thus more vulnerable to fires, generating near-term safety risks in addition to long-term health risks.  Some have burst into fire, including those manufactured by the company under consideration by EWEB. One such fire resulted in a fatality and a lawsuit (name of smart meter vendor company not known).  One Houston law firm already specializes in smart meter-related fires. More information about these fires can be found here on the EMF Safety Newtork. According to the recently released documentary Take Back Your Power over 400 fires are due to smart meters – either faulty installation, deviant technology, or older house wiring.
