Thank you, Lehigh Valley ASHRAE!
Made a small turnout into a cutting edge round table on the meeting topic. Some of the most lively yet courteous debaters. It's nice to have these opportunities, especially with new trends, to speak freely and candidly in a small group. One cool thing was having a total cross-section of industry players there.
We all will look back one day and remember our first group discussion of where we knew this resilience trend was ...and our speculations of where it might go.
And--delivered on my rider. Cold-brewed black coffee, coconut water, and peppermint gum. Started as a joke, but this was a fantastic welcome. Thanks, Frank!
Isn't that a great story? It reminds us how easy it is to start creating scenes and procedures that seem like what would happen in reality, but... once you think about it a little more...probably not.
Are you creating scenarios when thinking about what would happen during a power outage?
When we’re coming up with verification procedures, we have to be very considerate of the reality… the way the situation actually would play out. For loss of power, we need to think from the beginning-the incoming utility service…and think about the testing procedure methodically from that point, step by step, reaction by reaction. We need to make sure we’re not creating scenes or injecting ideals that won’t mimic real life when an outage happens. We need to bridge gaps that exist in inspections and other testing procedures.
Loss of Power – Are you REALLY prepared?
