Power Outage Contingency Plan
To minimize the impact of a blackout caused by natural disasters, aging infrastructures, lack of maintenance, or human-made errors, we have created a comprehensive risk intervention and disaster recovery plan by implementing the following strategies to your Power Outage Contingency Plan:
- Business Impact Analysis
- Risk Assessment
- Power Outage Restoration – site-specific schematics
By having this type of emergency preparation and business continuity blueprint, you safeguard your operations when disaster strikes by mitigating any potential risks, service disruptions, loss of vital information, long term power interruptions and/or loss of revenue.
Business Impact Analysis
Business Impact Analysis is a systematic process conducted through a questionnaire that helps identify and examine critical business functions affected during a blackout or power outage.
This analysis helps assess the intricacies and interdependencies between existing systems during catastrophic disasters and quantifies the adverse impact on the business. It examines the recovery time objectives (RTOs), recovery point objectives (RPOs), and resources needed to restore the business back to normal working conditions. We will take the following steps:
- Collect and analyze information
- Create a report
- Present report to senior management
Risk Assessment helps measure the financial and nonfinancial impact associated with a power outage or blackout once a BIA has been conducted. A risk and reward matrix will be formulated to highlight the probability of an adverse impact on business operations. We will then rank and establish critical applications and implement them as needed to continue business performance.
Power Outage Restoration Site-Specific Schematics (PORSSS)
Our Power Outage Restoration Site-Specific Schematics (PORSSS) is a map that illustrates the general layout of your facility and highlights the following key information:
- Electrical Distribution Panel
- Standby Generator
- Size of the generator needed
- Cable lengths
- Automatic Transfer Switch
- Fire Pump Engine
- Fuel Tank
The PORSSS is essential as it provides self-governing guidance when our technicians are onsite trying to restore your power during a power outage or blackout. It eliminates any dependency and reduces the duration of your power interruptions and loss of revenue with customers.
