Emergency Fuel and Generator Testing

This section requires hospitals to test emergency generators, have a plan to obtain fuel or evacuate the facility, and to meet the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) standards:
  • NFPA 101® 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (LSC), issued August 11, 2011 and all Tentative Interim Amendments issued prior to April 16, 2014; and
  • NFPA 99® 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code, issued August 11, 2011 and all Tentative Interim Amendments issued prior to April 16, 2014; and
  • NFPA 110® 2010 edition of the Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems (including Tentative Interim Amendments to chapter 7), issued August 6, 2009
Laboratories that are part of a health system do not need to have a separate plan if they are included in the facility's plan for emergency energy.
