Emergency Power

An emergency source of power is necessary in the event of the failure of the building's primary power source. An on-site generator is required and often battery-supplied back up power is available for some of the systems as well.

In some buildings, the emergency generator can be activated from the fire control room. However, in most buildings, only a status panel is available in the control room to provide information on fuel level, runtime, etc.
