School Emergency Generators?

Do you have a small school that has installed generators for emergency use? Society seems to be experiencing longer community power outages and our fire stations do not have the capability of handling more the 15 or 20 citizens for a two or three night stay.

  4. Our school has recently been the beneficiary of a generator.  It was installed via a grant as part of our designation as an Emergency Shelter.  The work was spearheaded by community members outside of the school, but early reports are that it has already benefited our school.  Our network infrastructure is more stable (no power blips keep the systems up and running) and there is no longer the necessity to end instruction in the event of a longer power outage.  So far it’s a big win.

  5. Our town owns a generator and is wanting it kept at the school for emergency shelter purposes. We are in the process of working out the arrangements.
