Can I hang a picture over a main breaker panel?


I believe firemen want the disconnect at the pole not at the panel. There is still live power when only the panel is shut off unless the panel is remote from the structure.

To my mind, if I were a fireman, I would remove the meter.
Of course, with an over-head service. its conceivable that flames would melt the service conductors.

Fireman I talked to told me they used to cut the lines at the pole with bolt cutters. OSHA or some other safety entity stopped them. They now have to wait for the POCO.

I always thought they had to be visible and accessible. That is why I have not covered mine. Maybe I can hang a spice rack over it. It would still be accessible by lifting the rack.
