One generator of the MPS shall be for the optional FEMA shelter if included with the project and be located within the shelter space to allow for power generation during times of sheltering. PBPN has standardized with Generac Generators and has preferred Liquid Propane generators. Diesel are an option but also have additional fuel issues that PBPN has to monitor during maintenance of the generators. Generators to be installed with E-Stop switches per applicable codes. Generators do not require an annunciator panel within the building, as PBPN utilizes Omni-Metrix cell and satellite monitoring for all generators that provides instant alerts to multiple staff of generator status and any alarms. PBPN has a contracted vendor to perform all installations for Generac Generators. Chosen contractor will be responsible for providing the installation utilizing the PPBN vendor.
