Press Release Summary: Whelan Electric Company launches new website that provides
information on Orange County Electrician services in the area.

Press Release Body: Dana Point, CA - Since October 2007, Orange County in Southern
California was in constant fire danger. A very dry season and strong Santa Ana winds
kept fueling these fires. In fact, over 1155 homes were destroyed just in October
alone. Although most of the damage occurred outside of Orange County, or along its
borders, there were many homes that had fire damage in the South Orange County area
including Lake Forest, Irvine, Foothill Ranch, and homes near San Clemente. With so
many homes damaged or destroyed, residents and business owners need to be careful
who they are hiring to redevelop their property. Tom Whelan, a local Orange County
Electrician is here to help those in need of electrical services and repair.

While the fire season in Southern California has ended, you still need to protect
yourself against unlicensed contractors. When you are ready to rebuild, make sure
you are completely protected by a licensed and bonded professional. The Contractors
State License Board (CSLB) has notified Southern California residents to be cautious
of unlicensed contractors. \"We also want the unlicensed operators to know that we
will be aggressive in keeping you out of the disaster area.\" a spokesman for CSLB
said. For the electrical reconstruction of your property Thomas Whelan, a local
Orange County Electrician is ready to bring back power to your home.

This isn't the first time this has been going on either. Three California men were
arrested in a sting operation last July pretending they were licensed contractors
trying to get away with work on fire damaged homes in the Tahoe area. The CSLB and
insurance agencies caught the men in a master planned sting operation. They also
state that if you are interested in checking a contractor's legitimacy, you can
check their license number on the CSLB site before you hire them. You can count on
Tom Whelan Electric to be professional and licensed to work at all times.

About 4 out of 5 electricians that are currently working in the industry are self
employed or work for a construction company. Make sure you know who you are dealing
with because the local government is warning residents and local contractors that if
any unlicensed contractors are working on fire damaged homes, both parties could be
fined up to $10,000. \"We want homeowners in the fire area to know that unlicensed
and unscrupulous operators may try to make them a victim a second time,\" said Steve
Sands, registrar of the California State License Board. You can always count on
Whelan Electric Company for trusted service.
