When an outlet won't work, sometimes your multimeter or other tester will say it should! But the acid test remains running a good old light bulb. This master electrician recommends using such a bulb and socket and not relying so much on electrical testers that are fooled by half-poor connections and phantom voltages.

NFPA and LEGOLAND Florida asked people to submit videos of their families and friends giving their best rendition of the theme song, "Put the Wet Stuff on the Hot Stuff" from The Big Test show at LEGOLAND. Members of the public were able to vote once per day to help select a winner among our 10 finalists -- and they received over 10,000 votes! Congratulations to the contest winner, Kathleen Marler and her family. Their video "Call 9-1-1" earned them the grand prize which includes LEGOLAND Florida two-day multi-park tickets for four people, two nights of hotel accommodations for four people, and $2,000 towards travel expenses.

You don't usually need a multimeter to troubleshoot electrical problems in the home. Among the things already available for you to test with are the circuit's breaker or the ground-fault interrupters (GFCI = GFI) already in place. So says this master electrician.

Vacaville Kid Fest was started in 1999, when an idea was born to create a "Children's Festival", a place where families could come and have a day of activities with their children at very little or no cost, and also have the opportunity to learn about many of the services and resources that were available to children and families. We adopted the theme "For the Child in all of us".
A group of City of Vacaville representatives, ranging from business owners and managers, nonprofit groups and media people were approached with the idea and met it with enthusiasm. And thus, Kid Fest was born.
The first Kid Fest Core Committee consisted of Shauna Manina, Meaghan O'Neill from Vacaville Police Dept., Linnea Dischinger from Vacaville Fire Dept., Todd Grames and Suzanne Green from Community Services Dept., and Reggie Hubbard from Housing & Redevelopment Dept. Other business people from The Reporter, Downtown Vacaville Business Improvement District, and others all committed to the vision of a day of low cost or no cost activities, free resources, and fun.
Our first event in 1999 had 1 stage and 40 booths, with everything from food, crafters and merchandise vendors, a wide range of social service and community nonprofit groups, free children's games and entertainment, bounce houses, and a very strong focus on child safety and health. From the beginning, a large component of the event has been the presence of Vacaville Fire and Police Depts., with their equipment displays, children's fire muster, and safety information.
By 2001, there were 2 stages of entertainment and over 120 booths participating in the event. The committee members have changed over the years, but the event has continued, and become part of the fabric of what makes Vacaville a family oriented community. The focus remains on child and family safety and health.

See you there!
