Electrical Inspections for Carnivals, Fairs and Traveling Shows

The carnival or traveling show will only be in town for the duration of the local festival or county fair before it’s torn down, packed up and moved to the next location. While the "jump” is something the carnie crew and roustabouts do each week, this may be the only inspection of a transient enterprise you are called on to do the entire year. Making sure your neighbors, friends and family are not exposed to electrical hazards means having an understanding of the National Electrical Code rules for transient electrical distribution systems.
