Free Webinar from Diesel Technology Forum

Facilities managers and professionals interested in learning more about the role of emergency power generators in emergency preparedness are invited to attend the following free webinar on March 18:

Preserving Public Safety:  Role of Backup Generators in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief and Recovery

Interruptions of electrical power, even of short duration, create situations that imperil public health and safety.  Emergency generators must be able to provide reliable, immediate and full strength electric power when there is a failure of the primary power supply system.  This free webinar will provide an understanding of the basic issues surrounding the use of emergency backup power systems, technology and fuel choices, operating conditions, and case studies.  

Speakers will include representatives from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security - Homeland Infrastructure Threat and Risk Analysis Center (HITRAC) and leading product, system and field experts representing Caterpillar and Cummins Power Generation.

When?  Monday, March 18 from 11:00-12:30 pm (PST).

Who should attend?  Federal, state and local policymakers; elected officials; emergency planners; property managers; business owners; and media.

What will this webinar address?
What technologies are available to provide emergency backup electrical power?
What are the differences between technologies?
What are the limitations on use of each of these technologies?
What lessons have we learned in the recent Superstorm Sandy about backup generators?
