Power Outage DR Planning

In the event of a prolonged power outage, perform the following tasks.


  1. Upon detection of a power outage that has affected any IT systems:
    • Ensure that the UPS and/or backup power generator supply has been activated; AND
    • Ensure that Facilities are continuously topping up backup power generators. 
  2. Attend the Crisis Management meeting and:
    • Liaise with Facilities to get an estimate of the duration of the power outage; AND
    • Determine whether there are any non critical systems that can be shut down to minimize the usage of backup power supply.
  3. Upon resumption of mains power, confirm that all systems have been switched back to mains power supply.
