Preparing for Mother Nature’s Wrath
Between Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, over 10 million residents and businesses in the southern US have lost power in the past 3 weeks. Natural disasters always call attention to the importance of having reliable back up power available for critical facilities and businesses. .
Long Term Storm Planning
Know your area’s storm season and prepare well in advance. Here are some steps you can take to prepare for the next natural disaster:
- Review your facility’s back-up power and disaster recovery plan.
- Check the health of your UPS batteries.
- Perform a visual inspection of your switchgear, ATS and electrical room equipment.
- Check the back-up power for modems, routers and networking gear.
- Don’t forget equipment installed at branch offices.
- Consider the criticality of all your IT equipment and prioritize.
Just Before a Storm Hits
Here are some recommended steps to complete storm preparations for your facility:
- Check that your building UPS is online and not in bypass mode or in alarm status.
- Make sure there is a reliable fuel supply for the building’s back-up generator and that the generator intake is clear of plant growth or other debris.
- Review the Equipment shut down procedure to make sure the gentle shut-down process follows your organization’s plan.
- Shut down non-critical equipment to reduce the overall power draw on your back-up power infrastructure.
- Encourage users to completely power down their workstations including monitors, printers, scanners and fax machines.
