Great job, FL!
Now— lets get together on proper execution. Life safety depends on a correct loss of power test for these systems. Don’t just gen test and then make the papers when you still don’t have AC or power when utility outages occur...
Isn't that a great story? It reminds us how easy it is to start creating scenes and procedures that seem like what would happen in reality, but... once you think about it a little more...probably not.
Are you creating scenarios when thinking about what would happen during a power outage?
When we’re coming up with verification procedures, we have to be very considerate of the reality… the way the situation actually would play out. For loss of power, we need to think from the beginning-the incoming utility service…and think about the testing procedure methodically from that point, step by step, reaction by reaction. We need to make sure we’re not creating scenes or injecting ideals that won’t mimic real life when an outage happens. We need to bridge gaps that exist in inspections and other testing procedures.
Loss of Power – Are you REALLY prepared?
