Emergency Power


Some buildings on campus provide automatic emergency power during electrical outages. The emergency power only supports essential life safety equipment such as elevators, corridor lighting, fire alarms, and exit lighting. Some new buildings have red emergency power outlets for essential equipment and machinery. Contact the Facilities Department to determine if other emergency outlets are available in your work area.

There are three types of emergency power sources:

  • Portable generators
  • Building generators
  • Battery power packs

Contact the Facilities Department for more information on emergency power.
