As summer arrives, weather events will inevitably interrupt utility power and impact residents’ routine way of condominium life.  Ensuring a condominium is prepared for a power failure is essential to maintaining safety, comfort, and quality of life for its residents.

     Below are three steps to ensure you are ready for the next power outage.

Training and Education

     Have key personnel trained in the basic operation of the emergency generator. Routine training and proactively preparing for power failures ensures a quick response time by on-site staff member(s) who can reset generator alarms and reengage the generator back into operation. Training helps educates the staff on what to expect for normal generator operations.

Training, Maintenance, and Testing

     Regular maintenance and testing of the power generator and related components are essential. Emergency power generators should be serviced routinely to guarantee they are in optimal working condition and can seamlessly activate in the event of a power outage. Weekly functional tests on your generator will bring to light any deficiencies or potential concerns that can then be addressed by a servicing company. 

Communication to Residents

     Protocols must be established to inform residents promptly about power outage updates and estimated restoration times. Residents need to be made aware of the limited amenities that are powered by the emergency generators. Maintaining open lines of communication through multiple channels, such as email, text alerts, and notice boards, ensures that residents are well informed and can take necessary precautions.

     By implementing these measures, a condominium can be better prepared to handle power outages and ensure the safety and well-being of its residents. Additionally, fostering a sense of community and collaboration among residents can enhance overall emergency preparedness efforts.
