Large-Scale Building Collapse: Supplying Temporary Electrical Power for Nighttime Operations [open pdf - 71KB]
"Following a large-scale building collapse, electrical power poles, lines, and circuits in and around the remaining structure may be irreparably damaged. For safety reasons, power to the area may need to be shut-off. Consequently, incident command (IC) may need to coordinate with local power companies to ensure that temporary electrical power is supplied, so that response and recovery operations can continue throughout the night."
