Role of Backup Generators in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief and Recovery

Preserving Public Safety: Role of Backup Generators in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief and Recovery – March 18

Interruptions of electrical power, even of short duration, create situations that imperil public health and safety. Emergency generators must be able to provide reliable, immediate and full strength electric power when there is a failure of the primary power supply system. This webinar provides an understanding of the basic issues surrounding the use of emergency backup power systems, technology and fuel choices, operating conditions, and case studies.

The loss of electrical grid power due to storms, natural disasters or high power demands are increasingly common. The cost of electrical outrages on annualized basis to the U.S. Economy range from $80 billion to over $100 billion annually, according to recent studies. Two-thirds of the outages are weather related, ranging from ice storms, hurricanes, lightning strikes and other incidents.

With a growing dependence on technology and interconnected systems that rely on electricity, power reliability becomes increasingly critical. Hospitals, data centers, water and sewage facilities, fueling stations, and communication and transportation systems require continuous power to protect public health and safety.
