"We encourage building management to be proactive in educating their residents about what their plans are in an emergency, and about what their action plans will be," says Ira Tannenbaum, assistant commissioner for public/private initiatives for the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM). "Power outages aren't always forecast, so it's not easy to put up a notification to tell people when the outage will be."

Therefore, Tannenbaum says, the management needs to notify the building ahead of time about what they should do. This should include letting people know that there will be a building representative in the lobby who will answer questions. Residents should also be aware of which areas of the building that should be avoided due to emergency operations or hazards during a blackout, he says.

So if there is an outage in your area they are familiar with the prioritization and needs of the people in your building," says Ira Tannenbaum, assistant commissioner for public/private initiatives for the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM).

...
If you're a building that's someplace that relies on overhead power systems, like Staten Island or other places, then loss of power is a primary concern," says Tannenbaum. Tannenbaum continues, "You should take a step back and think 'What if this happened to me?' We really want to encourage people to think about that, not to scare them but to make sure they're prepared.

To say, 'We've got residents on the third floor who have special needs,' for example," says Tannenbaum.

According to Tannenbaum, an addition to dealing with the lights, buildings will also have to reckon with potential security issues. Depending on the nature of the security system - and whether or not there are battery backups-entire buildings could find themselves without security should the electricity go down. "The reality is that a residence should think about the various ways that they are dependent on power, and plan accordingly," he says. For example, Tannenbaum says, if the building has a single doorman who is responsible for monitoring the cameras to the back and front entrance-or to multiple locations-then they might have to identify staff who would have to be in those locations physically should the electricity go out, because the cameras might not be working. "These are all things that they need to think about in advance, and communicate to the residents, so that they know that the building is taking these issues seriously," he says.
