Plan for PG&E Power Outage

If PG&E gives notice that power will be shut down for fire prevention, follow steps in attached document.

  • There are no catastrophic concerns for health and safety in case of power outage, though users should stay out of the labs as soon as the fume hoods go down as a precaution. The attached document simply explains measures that should be taken to protect instrumentation.
  • Glove boxes and critical equipment are on emergency power and will be in a safe state in event of a building-wide power outage.
  • **Staff should be notified if house N2 will be down for multiple days to discuss any potential concerns with pyrophoric materials in glove boxes.
