ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Woman's Hospital Prepared for Storms   [open pdf - 32KB]

"As Hurricane Isaac's strongest winds and rains moved inland and into the Louisiana capitol city of Baton Rouge, Woman's Hospital was ready. When the power started flickering at the hospital's new campus, administrators made the choice to go 'off the grid' for their energy supply. They switched to generators to power electronic medical monitoring devices, other technologies, and general operations. The staff had babies to deliver, surgeries to perform, and other female patients to care for. The hospital needed steady, reliable power - and three new generators supplied it."
