Electrical Wiring Script (1)Good morning / afternoon, we represent the Wellman-Union FFA Chapter. My name is . Joining me today are my team-mates, (announce yourselves) , , , and . (2) Today we would like to demonstrate to you the skill of adding, (showing each device) a Keyless Lamp Receptacle, a Single Pole Switch, and a Duplex Outlet to an existing electrical circuit. (3) At the Wellman-Union Agriscience Department and FFA we use electricity and electrical devices for, well, just about everything! Come to think of it, so does everyone else, at home, in agriculture, and in industry. Electricity powers almost all of the power equipment and power tools in our laboratory. Also, all of our climate controls and illumination are powered electrically. (4) We use devices such as (showing each again) Duplex Outlets, Switches, and Keyless Lamp Receptacles to utilize, harness, and control this efficient power source known as electricity. We feel that the ability to add or change these electrical devices in an electrical circuit is very valuable. (5) Not only can a person save time, they can also save money. Electricians can charge thirty dollars an hour or more, and may spend several hours completing a job. Thus, it is very justifiable for an individual to learn and use some basic electrical wiring skills. (1) Before we modify this circuit there are several considerations that we need to make:

1. Safety - Safety should always be your number one consideration, especially with electricity. Electricity can be deadly and should be completely disconnected before any work is done. (show disconnection) Also, everyone in the area should be aware that you are working with electricity, thus avoiding an accidental electrocution. (2) 2. Equipment - All wire, electrical devices, boxes, and any other equipment should meet any established local electrical codes. Also, you should always check your devices to make sure that their voltage rating corresponds with the voltage you are working with. (Show Devices) (3) 3. Amperage Load - If the devices that you add to the circuit bring the total amperage load over the rating of the current circuit breaker or fuse, you may have to add a totally new circuit or change the breaker and wire size for the existing circuit. (4) 4. Voltage - You should know what voltage you will be working with before you even begin planning to extend a circuit. In most cases you will deal with 120 or 240 volt circuits, like the ones in a home or the ones in our laboratory at Wellman-Union High School. Today we will be working with a 120 volt circuit

(5) 5. Tools - The correct tools will allow quick, proper, and safe installation of electrical devices. Today, we are each carrying the basic tools necessary for simple electrical wiring. (Show Tools) We each have : Phillips Head Screwdriver Sheathed Cable Stripper Flat Head Screw Driver Push-Pull Tape Measure
