In a disaster power and communication infrastructure is often damaged which means there is no way to communicate. Every Chrysalis administrator receives a portable HAM radio and is a federally licensed HAM radio operator. Each house is equipped with an emergency 72 hour kit as well as additional emergency food storage that will feed both the individuals being served as well as the staff.
Every Chrysalis employee is trained in CPR and First Aid and each house contains an emergency first aid kit to treat minor wounds caused by the disaster. Following Hurricane Katrina and the California wild fires the National Council on Disability issued a report stating that most government plans fail to consider the most vulnerable Americans in their emergency plans.
Emergency planners and government officials are generally unfamiliar and unaware of the unique needs of individuals with developmental disabilities. At Chrysalis we feel that the responsibility of preparedness starts with the person and with Chrysalis. Prepare a kit with a flashlight, batteries, bottled water, non-perishable food, blankets and warm clothing, emergency phone numbers, a first aid kit and other items you might need if power is out for several days. If your garage has an electric door opener, locate the manual release lever and know how to operate it. Stock up on shelf-stable foods such as canned goods, juices, peanut butter, energy bars, trail mixes and "no-freeze" entrees. If a permanent generator installation is desired, consult a licensed electrician to install an approved transfer switch. For help with planning and installing backup generators, call Puget Sound Energy at 1-800-562-1482. Check information from King County about preventing carbon monoxide poisoning and other extreme weather tips in multiple languages.
Do not use gasoline-powered machinery, such as generators, indoors or in a garage; toxic fumes can build up and are dangerous! Turn off lights and appliances, including your furnace, and unplug sensitive electronic devices, like computers to avoid a circuit overload when power is restored. Food will usually stay frozen for 36-48 hours in a fully loaded freezer if you keep the door closed.
Until recently, that lame joke summed up my attitude toward the assorted social networking websites and smart phone apps that promised to help me rekindle long-lost friendships, share my inner-most thoughts with all of humanity and watch a video of Justin Bieber getting a tattoo.
Given my haughty attitude, I was pretty sure there was nothing in this social networking thing for me. Up to this point, my Twitter relationships have been somewhat lop-sided in that I have gained far more than I have contributed (truth be told, I only have eight followers, and most of them are family members).
This time of year, inclement weather is almost a guarantee, so what better time than now to stock up on emergency preparedness products? When the Wurzak Hotel Group was looking to update the Sheraton Valley Forge, they were originally provided with a lighting and switchgear design that was way over budget.
This story is about our customer, Spectra Energy, and an emergency situation they encountered due to Hurricane Sandy. One of Spectra's most important natural gas meter stations is on Staten Island, feeding New York City.
Jim Niethammer, Electrical Controls Tech for Spectra Energy, got a call on Tuesday evening about going down to help out in the clean-up.
First, Chris found an Allen-Bradley breaker that could be ready by the middle of the following week for $3,000. A few hours later, Chris called the customer to let him know he had found an acceptable replacement in stock in South Carolina for $9,500. The lighting retrofit was one of the first services that electrical contractors (ECs) entering the energy servicesa€™ market offered their customers.
Large corporations and general contractors have evaluated the safety programs and performance of subcontractors, including electrical contractors, for years.

Most items are processed within 24 hours and shipped from the warehouse within 48 hours via 3-5 day ground delivery service (unless otherwise noted). Heavy items (anything over 150 lbs), bulk-freight, palletized items and custom fabrication made-to-order items may have longer shipping lead times. History has shown that we can't expect emergency services to support our individuals in the beginning. A fuel-burning heater, such as a kerosene heater, requires plenty of ventilation to prevent buildup of harmful fumes.
Leta€™s be honest, I hardly care about what I did yesterday, let alone what anyone else did. Hopefully that will change as I become more adept at participating in the dialog on subjects that interest me. A less expensive alternative was needed so Fromm was called in to see if a solution could be found. This information was forwarded to the individuals in charge, but they needed a replacement faster than that so Chris kept looking. In the beginning, lighting retrofits almost sold themselves because customers recognized that their lighting systems were outdated and believed upgrades would reduce recurring energy expenses and be environmentally responsible. Investments that are deemed a€?low-riska€? by upper management and have a fast return on investment (ROI) are typically the easiest to substantiate.

This system of LED light modules and LED trims is suitable for new construction, remodel and retrofit installation. If you retrofit those streetlights with the LED equivalent, your annual energy savings could be $3,000 for that street alone! Their service personnel will be notified, and the system provides updates to specific addresses. Plug appliances directly into the generator using heavy duty, properly grounded extension cords that arena€™t worn or frayed.
Besides, I already use my iPhone to manage most aspects of my life, the last thing I needed was another reason to be dependent on it. Since I began using Twitter about a month ago, I have become an avid a€?followera€? of nearly fifty sources of useful and interesting information ranging from trade publications and consumer news outlets to elected officials, political commentators and thought leaders on a host of subjects. In the meantime, I have picked up some truly valuable business insights and learned how to communicate a complete thought in 140 characters. An additional exterior accent lighting side-project was included, resulting in the striking look pictured above. Michele Skorupsky entered the order and stayed on top of it, ensuring that it would be there by Monday. As the energy servicesa€™ market has matured, customers moved on and began looking for new and different ways to reduce their energy use and demonstrate their commitment to the environment. Whata€™s more, many host employers are turning to a third party to perform these assessments. One such investment that will pay considerable dividends over the course of its operating life is a comprehensive power monitoring system.Even though increased energy prices have become a larger influence on the balance sheet, many facilities do not take advantage of opportunities to better manage these expenses. Even if a new unit is available, it could be days or even weeks until it arrives and, with the weight of these products, express shipping can be prohibitively expensive.
Updated information is also available at Puget Sound Energy if you have access to a working internet connection.
Although I have been a bit slow to pick up on the peculiar jargon and have only issued a handful of inane tweets so far, I must admit that checking Twitter is now a part of my daily routine.
Fromm came thru for us on finding, delivering and providing decent pricing on the breaker!!!
As a result, many ECs today believe lighting retrofits are no longer a viable energy service. The focus on contractor safety evaluations has raised questions regarding the need for an assessment, its value versus cost, the lack of consistency and what contractors must do to comply. Those without power monitoring systems likely have no understanding of their energy usage; those with them may not be using their systems to the fullest potential. If you retrofit those fixtures with energy efficient fluorescent lighting, your annual energy savings could be over $1,000. There is no doubt that the lighting retrofit market has matured over the past decade, but it certainly has not passed on. In order to optimize a power monitoring investment, it's important to understand both the intended application and energy usage priorities within the facility.When evaluating the need for a power monitoring system, or reassessing an existing system, it's important to ask yourself certain questions.
The durable case is water resistant and can be stowed away in your backpack or jacket pocket, making it a perfect addition to any emergency preparedness kit.
I would probably still be down there trying to get some way of getting this meter station on utility power!!! Here, youa€™ll learn why lighting retrofits can still be profitable and how such services can help the customer improve its business results.
