Change generator requirements
Action 2443
General Information
Action Summary The proposed amendments delete some of the generator-related requirements for assisted living facilities. Facilities will no longer be required to have either an emergency generator on-site or an agreement to obtain one in an emergency that disrupts electrical power. In addition, specific services to be provided by emergency electrical power were deleted. Moreover, the requirement for availability of a 96-hour supply of emergency generator fuel was removed. A clarification was made to the requirement regarding compliance with the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code so that it is clear that it relates to the connection for temporary electric power, not to the emergency electrical power source. In respect to the emergency plan, an addition was made to the requirement to contact the local emergency coordinator, i.e., an element was added to determine any assistance that would be provided to the facility by the local emergency management office. Another change in the plan removed procedures related to the operation and testing of emergency generators and replaced them with procedures for maintaining and operating all emergency equipment.
