Around here they aren't so gentle. I saw a house fire where a fireman
used the pointed end of a fireman's
axe to rip the ring off the meter, then pry it out, letting it crash
to the ground, smashed up real good. :)

At one time it was quite common and I remember many buldings with
external shutoffs,and the meters inside. The meter was often quite
some distance from where the power entered the building - often right
at the distribution panel/fuse box. I even remember seeing the
disconnect mounted on the power pole next to the building, with the
power coming down the pole to the disconnect, then down from there and
entering the building underground - no rack attached to the building
to connect the power wires to.
The meter reader had to enter the building to read the meter.

Is there a cover that has to be opened. A cheap switch on teh cover, a
normally closed switch, that makes the burglar alarm beep. They will
usually be able to do that even when they're not armed. And someone
with a baseball bat who can get out there quick.
