In the event of a power failure, 617 W. 7th Street is equipped with one (1) emergency diesel fueled generator located on the roof. The generator provides power for emergency egress lighting and fire life safety systems throughout the building.
If the power failure occurs during daylight hours, open the blinds to utilize available sunlight. This should be avoided, however, in emergency situations where procedures call for closed blinds.
Following is a list of items that all tenants should keep on hand in case an emergency of any kind causes the loss of power:
- Emergency Lighting - flashlights, flares, light sticks.
- Batteries - keep a fresh supply.
- Blankets - lightweight fire and shock retardant emergency blankets.
- Radios - portable transistor radios with extra batteries and two-way radios.
