A nine year old house I inspected today had the main panel in the crawl space (a tall crawl space, roughly 8 feet high), and the door to the crawl space had a keyed deadbolt that was locked when we arrived for the inspection. It seems to me that this is a safety hazard since the fire and rescue crews often want to turn the power off in the event of a fire, and this would stop them. Any thoughts?
