Restoring Temporary Power
Disasters such as flood or fire most often result in a temporary loss of power to a home or business. The consequences can vary from mild to severe where the loss of power could affect the operation of a business or result in hazards in the workplace or home.
Restoring temporary power as soon as possible is therefore of utmost importance. Disaster restoration service providers offer a range of different solutions to ensure that your business is operational, your home safe and secure and that electronics and other equipment are protected while the power is out.
1. Planning Ahead
Whether you are a business or homeowner, you probably have insurance to provide financial cover in the event of a disaster. This is thinking and planning ahead for a disastrous event that could have catastrophic and costly consequences. In the same way, it is highly recommended to plan ahead to ensure that power is restored to your home or business premises.
A disaster restoration service provider will assist you in planning to meet your unique power requirements. Having a plan in place will ensure that power is restored quickly and effectively reducing the time that you are powerless. Prioritizing critical or essential operations as well as safety is paramount to planning for power disruptions after a disaster has struck.
2. Reserve A Power Supply
During a time of mass power outages (such as after a natural disaster), there is a high demand for temporary power restoration. Supplies are limited and it may be too late to call once the event has already occurred and the power supply interrupted.
Reserving a power supply to restore power to your home or business is therefore critical to ensure that you are first in line and that temporary restoration will be possible. As part of your disaster restoration plan, it is highly recommended to reserve a mobile power supply or generator that will meet your needs.
3. Temporary Power Supply Management
Your disaster restoration service provider will manage all aspects of restoring power to your home or business. They will install the mobile power supply and ensure that all critical and safety priorities outlined in your disaster recovery plan are up and running. Should the supply fail for any reason, a technician will attend to the problem or an alternative power supply will be provided as a replacement.
However, it is important to include the type of power supply that will be necessary to run all required equipment, electronics, lights and other electrics during an outage. A power supply that is insufficient will fail. Inform your disaster restoration provider of any changes to your load requirements to ensure that you receive a power supply that has the capacity to meet your needs. It is also imperative to ensure that all electrics (wiring, fuses, electrical panels, etc.) are well-maintained and in good order to prevent any issues arising with a power supply that is provided on a temporary basis.
Being prepared for a disaster can mean the difference between staying operational and safe in your home or business while reducing damage and other consequences of an extended disruption to your regular power supply.
