EHCSD Schools experienced a short power outage today during the afternoon. Power was quickly back on thanks to our generators at each building. This outage, due to a rolling brown-out, did impact systems for a few moments, but we were completely up and running a few minutes after the initial dimming of lights.
There was little to know significant disruption to classes at either building.
After inspection of our systems, and back-up systems, we are confident all worked as it is designed to do. Generators kicked in after mere moments, and then cycled off after the power was restored in-full. The entire situation was resolved in about 15 minutes, and we only had a few moments of lights dimming as a result.
We actively maintain and test these systems, but we do not often experience them in a live event. It was a good test of those systems today. They all performed as designed.
