The countermeasures when the meter box catches fire are as follows:

Cut off the power: Immediately cut off the main power switch of the meter box to prevent the spread of fire and reduce the risk of electric shock.

Use a suitable fire extinguisher: Choose a carbon dioxide fire extinguisher or a dry powder fire extinguisher to extinguish the fire. Never use a water or foam fire extinguisher to avoid electric shock due to conductive electricity.

Keep a safe distance: Keep a safe distance from the meter box during fire extinguishing and avoid direct contact with live parts.

Alarm and evacuation: Quickly dial 119 to call the police and notify surrounding people to evacuate to ensure that everyone evacuates the fire scene safely.

Prevent re-ignition: After the fire is under control, check whether there is any residual fire or heat source in the meter box, and continue to use a fire extinguisher to put it out if necessary.

Professional inspection: After the fire is completely eliminated, ask a professional electrician or relevant technician to check the meter box and circuit to find out the cause of the fire and repair or replace it to prevent similar incidents from happening again.

Through the above countermeasures, meter box fires can be effectively controlled, losses reduced and personnel safety ensured.
