||Commentary on data sheet VDE 0132/2.79 of the Association of German Electrical Engineers, (effective in 1979), which gave rules on the minimum distance to be kept between the orifice of the fire lance and live electrical installations. The minimum distances were reduced depending on voltage and lance orifice design. When in contact with the live element, the water should be sprayed so as not to create an electric connection. A table is provided as an aid to remembering the statutory distances for a full jet or spray in the presence of low or high voltage when the precise voltage is unknown.
