Are Eugene Business Prepared for Power Outages?
Our North Eugene and Northwest Lane County team wants businesses in Eugene to be prepared to stay operational during a power outage. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety for maintaining and servicing your generator:
The time to maintain a generator is well before a major storm or disaster strikes. Backup power can help maintain a consistent building temperature and reduce the risk of freezing pipes leading to business disruption and damage.
- Permanent generators should have a proper maintenance plan that includes weekly, monthly, and annual checks. See the manufacturer’s specifications for more information.
- Run the unit on its maintenance plan weekly to ensure it properly functions in an emergency. Individual units may have a timer that allows a programmed test to be scheduled, and qualified personnel should oversee these scheduled weekly tests.
- Check the generator enclosure for loose debris or other conditions that could cause the unit not to function correctly.
- Store in a dry location
- Set up a maintenance schedule to include periodic test runs for the unit
