09/01/2015 | The Importance of having an Emergency Backup Generator in Schools
When the kids are in school, parents rely on teachers and school administrators to keep their children safe. One way to keep the school halls safer for students is to have an emergency backup generator on standby, ready to be used in case of a power outage.
During a power outage, critical school systems that rely on electricity will go down. This means communication lines could be compromised, alarm systems are turned off, the PA system and school bells also won't work. All of these tools are essential to running the school smoothly and keeping the safety of kids in check.
Benefits of a Standby Generator
With an emergency backup generator on standby, all systems will remain running despite a power interruption. One of the most important things that need to be powered at all times is the school's communications system. Phone lines and even the Internet are critical components during a power outage and the kids are still within the school's premises. With communication lines open, parents have a way of getting in touch with the school administrators to check on the situation and ensure that their kids are safe. Similarly, school personnel can also get in touch with the parents and guardians of their students to inform them of the need to do unscheduled pickups due to the power outage.
Plus, with the rooms and halls lit by an emergency backup generator, teachers can smoothly direct the flow of students and lead them outside or to a designated place of gathering within the school's premises. Additionally, the school won't be criticized for neglecting or failing to properly address an emergency. When the kids are away from their parents and their homes, their safety should always come first.
