It is a requirement for nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Florida to have an emergency back-up generator, as per a law signed last month, March of 2018. This is in response to the recent deaths during power outages following hurricane Irma, pertaining to insufficient generator power to maintain air conditioning.
Florida is one of the first states to pass a law such as this, and with good reason. Every year, Florida undergoes a long hurricane season, and although many seasons are relatively peaceful, the risk of disaster is always present; in fact, a storm or long term power outage is an inevitable eventuality. That said, a regularly maintained back-up generator eliminates much of these risks. Megawattage is ready to provide all assisted living facilities and nursing homes with permanent stand-by power.
