EMERGENCY POWER

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The current spate of blackouts plaguing California underscores the County’s need for dependable emergency power.

In times of blackouts or even more serious emergencies (such as a major earthquake or fire), County citizens must be able to depend on backup emergency power to run emergency operations centers, emergency dispatch centers, police and fire facilities, public works operations, and water treatment and sewer plants.

During its investigation, the 2000-2001 Grand Jury observed an actual power outage at the Santa Barbara City police station in October 2000.  If anything should alert Santa Barbara County and its incorporated cities to the need to connect adequate circuits to the generators and supply Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) to computers, the threat of blackouts should be that trigger.

 

1999-2000 Grand Jury Report

 

This Jury is following up a report of the 1999-2000 Grand Jury in order to cover additional facilities in the County that were not included in that report.  This year’s Grand Jury also looked at municipalities, special districts and authorities to be sure to inspect not only fire stations and jails, but also water supply and wastewater operations.

The 1999-2000 Jury tested the reliability of emergency power generators at 33 public safety facilities (including the Main Jail and 16 fire stations) that are under County or City of Santa Maria jurisdiction.  The question at that time was could the County depend on emergency power in case of a Y2K incident.

A complete list of the facilities inspected, and the findings and recommendations made by last year's Jury, is available by accessing the 1999-2000 Santa Barbara County Grand Jury Report on the Internet at www.sbcgj.org or by contacting the Santa Barbara County Clerk's office.

There were some almost unbelievable discoveries during the 1999-2000 Grand Jury investigation including one fire station where there was no lighting in the equipment bay during times of emergency, and another fire station that lost the use of all its telephones when the station was switched to emergency power.

That Grand Jury found that many emergency power generators were tested weekly but with no realistic load applied or with the assigned load applied while normal utility power


was still up and running.  That Jury found, in several areas, electrical code violations that would have resulted in citations if found during inspections in privately owned facilities.

The 1999-2000 report was critical of the frequent refueling that many motor-generator sets needed, and questioned the use of diesel engines in many facilities.  The use of diesels was frowned upon by that Jury because diesels are usually loaded to about 10% of capacity.  That Jury suggested that they should be tested and used at a minimum of 50% of rated power.

The 1999-2000 report also noted numerous problems in identifying circuitry for emergency power within facilities.

 

OBJECTIVES AND PROCEDURES

 

The 2000-2001 Grand Jury made site visits primarily to conduct tests to determine the type, capacity, and operational readiness of emergency power systems. The speed and adequacy of emergency power response was the key determination the Jury wanted to make during each visit, but when problems such as electrical code violations and safety hazards were discovered, they were noted. In the course of these visits, maintenance records and contracts were also reviewed.  The following sites were visited:

 

·        Santa Barbara Main Jail (Sheriff’s Department)

·        Santa Barbara County Male Honor Farm (Sheriff’s Department)

·        Santa Barbara County Public Safety Dispatch Center (9-1-1)

·        Santa Barbara Juvenile Hall (Probation Department)

·        City of Santa Barbara Fire Stations (six locations)

·        City of Santa Barbara Public Works Department

·        City of Santa Barbara Police Station

·        City of Santa Barbara Airport District Facilities (four locations)

·        City of Santa Barbara Wastewater Treatment Plant

·        City of Santa Barbara Wastewater Lift Stations (three locations)

·        City of Santa Barbara Water Treatment Plant

·        City of Santa Barbara Water Pump Stations (four locations)

·        Carpinteria/Summerland Fire Stations (two locations)

·        Montecito Fire Stations (two locations)

·        City of Lompoc Fire Stations (two locations)


·        City of Lompoc Equipment Maintenance Department

·        City of Lompoc Electrical Department

·        City of Lompoc Beattie Park Repeater Site

·        City of Solvang Fire Station, City Hall and Communication Center (one location)

 

In addition, the Jury held discussions with the Santa Barbara County Building Department and the Santa Barbara County General Services Department about emergency power issues.

 

 

PRELIMINARY NOTES

 

·        All code violations noted throughout this document reference the National Electrical Code (NEC).

·        References are made to the “3-foot rule.”  This is an NEC specification requiring a 3-foot clearance in front of all electrical equipment so that it is readily accessible for operation and maintenance.  The NEC references are Articles 110-26, 110-26a, and 110-26b (NEC).

·        The acronym UPS is frequently used and means Uninterruptible Power Source.  A UPS is a unit interposed between the central processing unit of a computer or other electrical devices and the main AC power source.  In the event of a power failure, the UPS will provide uninterrupted power for 5 to 15 minutes to enable the computer system to be shut down in an orderly manner, avoiding data loss and other damage.

 

 

OBSERVATIONS

 

CARPINTERIA/SUMMERLAND FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT

 

Fire Station #2 (Lillie Ave.)

 

This Fire Station is in need of inspection for electrical violations.  The emergency generator is a portable unit located at the front left side of the station inside the garage door.  The portable emergency generator supplies emergency power via an extension cord that is routed overhead through the attic space that feeds keyless porcelain light fixtures in numerous locations.  This is a violation of NEC Articles 400-3 and 400-8.  These Articles refer to the proper use of extension cords. There is equipment stored in front of electrical panels, which violates the 3-foot rule.


The Summerland Fire Station is in the poorest condition of all stations inspected by this Grand Jury.  The need for renovation and updating is so acute that demolition and rebuilding might be preferable.

The Jury suggests that the citizens of the Carpinteria/Summerland Fire Protection District visit this facility in order to form their own opinions and present them to the District Directors.

Finding 1:  The Summerland Fire Station is in marginal condition at best.

Recommendation 1:  Consider demolishing the station and rebuilding it on the same or another location.

 

Finding 2:  An illegal extension cord supplies emergency power to station lights.

Recommendation 2:  Correct the electrical code violation.

 

Finding 3:  There is equipment stored in front of electrical panels that violates the 3-foot rule, which requires clearance in front of all electrical equipment.

Recommendation 3:  Correct the 3-foot violation.

 

Fire Station #1 (Walnut Ave.)

 

An emergency generator supplies the facility and appeared to function properly.  It also supplies emergency power to the associated Emergency Operations Center.

 

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY FACILITIES

 

Santa Barbara County Main Jail (Sheriff’s Department)

 

When the 1999-2000 Grand Jury visited the Santa Barbara County Jail to inspect provisions for emergency power, it noted and commented about the kilo-ammeter used.  The 300-kilowatt generator was so lightly loaded that the ampere readings were not discernible on the meter.  Subsequent to the first visit from the Jury, there was a major breakdown in the power transfer switch and a repair/replacement had to be made.  The requested meter corrections were incorporated in the contract and now the actual current drawn from each phase is independently readable.


 

Santa Barbara County Public Safety Emergency Generator

 

The diesel-fed emergency generator for this 911 facility is located on the west side of the jail complex within a fenced area.  The facility has a large bank of batteries for the UPS system that can keep the facility operating uninterrupted in case of a power outage until the emergency generator is on line.  This system is so sophisticated that the personnel could not even detect a flicker on the switchover.

The diesel generator is fed from the diesel fuel tank through galvanized pipe.  The manufacturer of the generator has indicated that galvanized piping should not be used.

Finding 4:  Galvanized pipe is used to feed diesel fuel to the generator.

Recommendation 4:  Replace the galvanized pipe with black steel pipe.

 

Santa Barbara County Honor Farm (Sheriff’s Department)

 

This facility was inspected to check items of concern that were observed by another committee of this Grand Jury.  The Sheriff’s staff authorized the facility maintenance supervisor to inspect the entire facility for electrical problems and, if warranted, to make corrections.

Finding 5:  Assorted electrical violations were found and reported to Sheriff's staff.

Recommendation 5: The General Services Department should conduct annual inspections.

 

Santa Barbara South County Juvenile Hall (Probation Department)

 

The Jury inspection of this facility took place while the emergency generator was energizing the buildings.  Some minor items of concern were noted and these were later corrected.

 

CITY OF SANTA BARBARA

 

Police Station (215 East Figueroa St.)

 

The Grand Jury observation in October 2000 happened to take place during one of Southern California Edison’s unexpected “Turnpike Circuit” power outages.  The Turnpike Circuit feeds the area bounded by Santa Barbara, Pueblo, Milpas, and Montecito streets.  The Santa Barbara City Facilities Manager believes this circuit is old and is in need of replacement.

The Police Station has two generators, one dedicated to the 9-1-1 Control Center and the other for the remainder of the station.  Both of the generators appeared to function properly.


The non-9-1-1 generator supplies light fixtures and receptacles needed to keep the facility partially functional during an emergency.  This emergency generator is definitely large enough to accommodate additional load.  The Jury observed that the facility was under-illuminated and otherwise inadequately powered by the emergency generator during the power outage condition.  Emergency lighting was absent in the emergency generator room, restrooms, the hallway to the men's locker room, and other locations.

Finding 6:  The Police Station is under-illuminated when on emergency power.

Recommendation 6:  Additional light fixtures in the generator room, in hallways, bathrooms and other locations should be added to the emergency generator.

 

Finding 7:  The non-9-1-1 emergency generator is under utilized.

Recommendation 7:  The City Public Works Department should analyze the power load on the facility's non-9-1-1 emergency generator and calculate the amount of additional load it could handle.  If supported by this analysis, the modifications necessary to enable the emergency generator to supply the entire facility or as much as is warranted during emergencies should be made.

 

El Estero Wastewater Treatment Plant (520 E. Yanonali St.)

 

This facility is well prepared for an electrical outage.  The Grand Jury observed the operation of the emergency generator with the utility power shut off.  The plant remained in full operation and seemed to function properly.

 

La Colina Wastewater Lift Station (4001 La Colina Road)

 

This facility's emergency generator appeared to function properly.  The electrical backboard needs to be replaced.  There is no first-aid kit on the premises.  There is a high step to the electrical pad.

Finding 8:  The edge of the step to the electrical pad at the La Colina Wastewater Lift Station is not visible and could be a hazard.

Recommendation 8:  A yellow stripe should be painted on the step to the electrical pad.

 

Finding 9:  The electrical backboard and supports are in bad physical shape.

Recommendation 9:  The electrical backboard and supports should be replaced.

 

Braemar Wastewater Lift Station (1 Alan Road)

 

This station is in good condition. This facility's emergency generator appeared to function properly.


El Camino De La Luz Wastewater Lift Station (1901 El Camino De La Luz)

 

This wastewater lift station facility has just been renovated. The vent at the top of the pump shaft is in a location that could permit mud and debris to flow into the pump shaft.  Communication cable from the pump shaft now lies on the concrete pad then goes through an electrical condulet-type fitting.  This facility's emergency generator appeared to function properly.

 

Finding 10:  The vent at the top of the shaft could allow debris to flow into the pump shaft.

Recommendation 10:  Relocate the vent to prevent debris entering the tank.

 

Finding 11:  Communication cable is not installed inside of electrical conduit.

Recommendation 11:  The communication cable should be installed in a conduit for protection from damage.

 

Escondido Hydropneumatic Pump Station (at Escondido Reservoir off Skyline Circle)

 

This facility is well prepared for an electrical outage.  The Grand Jury observed the operation of the emergency generator with the utility power shut off.  This facility's emergency generator appeared to function properly.

 

Bothin Pump Station (at East Reservoir on Crestline)

 

This facility is well prepared for an electrical outage.  The Jury observed the operation of the emergency generator with the utility power shut off.  This facility's emergency generator seemed to function properly.

 

Tunnel Road Hydropneumatic Pump Station (at Tunnel Reservoir at the end of Tunnel Road)

 

At this facility the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) conduit-encased ground cable is not properly attached to the concrete pad.  This facility's emergency generator seemed to function properly.

 

Finding 12:  The PVC conduit is not attached to the concrete pad.

Recommendation 12:  The PVC conduit should be properly attached to the concrete pad.

 


Cater Treatment Plant (1150 San Roque Road)

 

This facility's emergency generator appeared to function properly while on emergency power.

 

All Wastewater Lift Stations and Water Pump Stations

 

Finding 13:  Fire extinguishers and first-aid kits are lacking at these facilities.

Recommendation 13:  Public Works Department should inspect all wastewater and water pump station facilities and install fire extinguishers and first-aid kits as needed.

 

This Grand Jury thanks the staff of the Santa Barbara City Public Works Department, Cater Water Treatment Plant and El Estero Wastewater Treatment Plant for their cooperation and patience.

 

Fire Station #2 (819 Cacique Street)

 

A UPS unit is needed for the computer system.  Cans for recycling are stored too close to electrical equipment in violation of the 3-foot rule.  This fire station's emergency generator appeared to function properly.

 

Finding 14:  A UPS unit is not installed on the computer in this station.

Recommendation 14:  Install a UPS unit on this computer.

 

Finding 15:  There is a 3-foot violation.

Recommendation 15:  Correct the 3-foot violation.

 

Fire Station #3 (415 East Sola Street)

 

The height of the opening of the truck bay cannot be increased because of design and aesthetic considerations.  This limits the height of the fire vehicles that can be used there. This fire station's emergency generator seemed to function properly.

 

Fire Station #4 (19 North Ontare Road)

 

Some electrical panels were not labeled (NEC Articles 230-66 and 384-13).  The City Public Works Department reported this facility as being energized 100% when the emergency generator is operating.  The Grand Jury found this to be incorrect.  Some of the receptacles in the kitchen were not on emergency power.  This fire station's emergency generator appeared to function properly.

 


Finding 16:  Some of the electrical panels were not labeled.

Recommendation 16:  Label all panels in this fire station.

 

Finding 17:  The fire station is not 100% fed by the emergency generator as reported by the Public Works Department.

Recommendation 17:  The City Public Works Department should analyze the power load on the facility and, if warranted, connect the entire fire station to the emergency generator.

 

Fire Station #5 (2505 Modoc Road)

 

At present, the fuel tank at the emergency generator site must be filled by hand from an underground tank at the front of the station, a major concern when personnel have to be taken away from the emergency.  There can be a serious inconvenience when the station must be operated on emergency power for an extended period.  Illumination in the generator area is inadequate for the size of the area being lighted.  The edge of the back step at the station is not very visible and could be a hazard.  This fire station's emergency generator appeared to function properly.

 

Finding 18:  The edge of the back step to the station is not visible.

Recommendation 18:  A yellow stripe should be painted on the back step to the station.

 

Finding 19:  The fuel tank that feeds the generator is not convenient to fill.

Recommendation 19:  A larger tank that can be filled directly from the underground fuel tank or made accessible for filling from a fuel truck should replace the existing fuel tank at the generator.

 

Finding 20:  Illumination in the generator area is inadequate.

Recommendation 20:  Additional lighting should be installed to illuminate the generator area.

 

Fire Station #7 (2411 Stanwood Drive)

 

The emergency generator was demonstrated for the Jury and seemed to function properly.  There is no UPS unit for the computer.

 

Finding 21:  A UPS unit is not installed on the computer in this station.

Recommendation 21:  Install a UPS unit on this computer.

 

Fire Station #8 (601 Firestone Road at the Santa Barbara Airport)

 

This is a new station.  It is 100% energized when on emergency power.


One of the rooms was not completed during the original construction but is being used as sleeping quarters.  It needs lighting fixtures, bathroom fixtures, faucets, and flooring.

 

Finding 22:  One room was not completed during the original construction.

Recommendation 22:  Complete the construction of the unfinished room.

 

All Santa Barbara City Fire Stations

 

The Grand Jury noticed that the 3-foot rule was being violated at several fire stations in the City of Santa Barbara.  This is a violation for which a citation could be given in the private sector.

 

Finding 23:  The 3-foot rule is violated at several fire stations throughout the City of Santa Barbara.

Recommendation 23:  Inspect all Fire Stations throughout the city and correct all 3-foot rule violations.  A yellow stripe should be painted on the floor directly in front of all electrical equipment to remind personnel not to store items there.

 

Santa Barbara City Airport Facilities

 

S-2 Building 480 (Terminal)

 

The Grand Jury inspected this facility with the normal utility power off in March 2001.  This facility's emergency generator seemed to function properly during the testing for the Grand Jury.  The emergency generator started up with everything operating within five seconds.

 

S-3 Air Field Operations Area (Runway Lighting)

 

This operation was inspected at 6 A.M. when the first flight was ready for departure.  The Jury shut off the 600-ampere main circuit breaker to de-energize the runway lights.  The emergency generator for the runway lights started up in approximately three to five seconds, and simultaneously, the runway lights re-energized as designed.

 

P-300 Building 255 (Administration Building)

 

The Grand Jury observed that a portable emergency generator is located behind this building on what appears to be on a permanent basis.  The generator has an extension cord that is plugged into the building to feed the necessary items for the entire building.  The transfer mechanism is a manual transfer switch.


When a power outage occurs:

·        Personnel would have to get to the site,

·        Start the emergency generator,

·        Switch OFF normal utility power, and

·        Switch ON to the emergency power supply side of the transfer switch.

This is a time-consuming operation that is compounded if brief outages occur numerous times during a day.  An automatic transfer switch would enable a smooth transfer of power with no human intervention.  This facility's portable emergency generator seemed to function properly during the testing for the Grand Jury.

 

Finding 24:  The facility has a manual transfer switch.

Recommendation 24:  Install an automatic transfer switch to the system to have a smooth transfer of emergency power.

 

P-400 Building 114 (Security Building)

 

In observing security operations, the Jury noticed that the closed-circuit monitors in the console are old and outdated.  With security as essential as it is in today’s world, the Jury thinks that Airport authorities should consider updating their equipment to optimize this aspect of the security capability.

The Grand Jury observed that a portable emergency generator is located on the side of this building, seemingly on a permanent basis.  This generator has an extension cord that is plugged into the building to feed the facility. The transfer mechanism is a manual transfer switch.

When a power outage occurs:

·        Personnel would have to get to the site,

·        Start the emergency generator,

·        Switch OFF normal utility power, and

·        Switch ON to the emergency power supply side of the transfer switch.

This appears to be a time-consuming operation that is compounded if brief outages occur numerous times during a day.  An automatic transfer switch enables a smooth transfer of power with no human intervention.  This facility's portable emergency generator seemed to function properly during the testing for the Jury.

 


Finding 25:  The security console and monitors that observe the main terminal and tarmac are outdated.

Recommendation 25:  The console and monitors should be replaced with updated equipment.

 

Finding 26:  The facility has a manual transfer switch.

Recommendation 26:  Install an automatic transfer switch to the system to have a smooth transfer of emergency power.

 

CITY OF SOLVANG

 

Solvang City Hall, Fire Station and Communications Center (1644 Oak Street)

 

The emergency generator that powers Solvang City Hall, the fire station, and the communication center is new, but it is on a manual transfer system.  The Grand Jury was informed that it could take up to 20 minutes to get everything on line after a power outage, and this is only if the outage occurs during working hours, when personnel are close by.  If the outage occurs at any other time, someone would have to be notified to go to City Hall.  Once there, they would have to follow written procedures for shutting off utility power disconnects and circuit breakers, then start up the emergency generator, switch over to generator power, and then switch the circuit breakers back on.  This is a time-consuming operation that is compounded if brief outages occur numerous times during a day.  An automatic transfer switch would enable a smooth transfer of power with no human intervention no matter when the outage occurs.

 

Finding 27:  The emergency generator is on a manual transfer switch operation.

Recommendation 27:  The system should have an automatic transfer switch installed to eliminate lost time and other problems during power outages.

 

CITY OF LOMPOC

 

Portable Diesel Generator in the Corporate Yard (1300 West Laurel Ave.)

 

The City of Lompoc provides its own electric power as the City has its own municipally owned utility.  The department in charge of this operation has portable generators mounted on trailers to supply facilities throughout the City in case of power outages.  The Jury inspected one portable emergency generator that was stored in the Corporate Yard.

This portable generator is not suitable for outdoor use.  The flexible electrical conduit and a junction box are not approved for wet locations.  It is not rated per National Electrical Manufactures Association (NEMA) 3.  The City is awaiting documentation from the manufacturer stating otherwise.


The corporate yard has another emergency generator that energizes the entire yard in a power outage.  This generator appeared to do the job, but the Grand Jury believes that better housekeeping is needed.  The unit was coated with oil and grime.

 
Finding 28:  The portable emergency generator is not NEMA 3 rated.

Recommendation 28:  The City should retrofit this emergency generator to NEMA 3 rating.

 

Finding 29:  The corporate yard emergency generator is coated with oil and grime.

Recommendation 29:  The Public Works Department should have the emergency generator cleaned and keep it that way.

 

Civic Center (100 Civic Center Plaza)

 

The emergency generator for the Police Station and City Hall appeared to operate properly.  When the operation was demonstrated for the Jury, personnel in each facility were asked if they noticed any interruption during the transfer of power.  Their responses indicated that they barely saw a flicker.

 

Fire Station #1 (115 South G Street)

 

Electrical panels need to be labeled.  It is common practice to have all electrical panels labeled and have a panel schedule that identifies the circuits and equipment fed by each circuit breaker.

 

There is equipment stored in front of electrical panels, which violates the 3-foot rule. 

A UPS unit is needed for the computer system.  We observed insufficient lighting in the emergency generator area.

 

A portable generator is temporarily in use at this time (March 2001).

 

Finding 30:  The electrical panels are not labeled.

Recommendation 30:  Label all electrical panels and provide a panel schedule to identify all equipment that the circuit breakers feed.

 

Finding 31:  The 3-foot rule was violated.

Recommendation 31:  Correct all 3-foot rule violations.

 

Finding 32:  There is no UPS system for the computers in this fire station.

Recommendation 32:  Install a UPS unit for the computers.

 


Finding 33:  Lighting was insufficient for the generator area.

Recommendation 33:  Install new lighting for the emergency generator area or redirect the existing light fixture.

 

Fire Station #2 (1100 D Street)

 

This fire station's emergency generator is too noisy for this location.  It did seem to function properly for the load.  There is a 3-foot rule violation in the outside area next to the generator.

This fire station could be seriously under-powered in an outage. The Grand Jury was told that there are plans to replace this station, possibly in a year.

 

Finding 34:  The emergency generator is too noisy for this location.

Recommendation 34:  Reduce the noise level.

 

Finding 35:  There is a 3-foot rule violation next to the generator.

Recommendation 35:  Correct the 3-foot rule violation.

 

MONTECITO FIRE DEPARTMENT

 

Fire Station #1 (595 San Ysidro Road)

 

This Grand Jury was generally impressed with this station.

The Jury did notice, however, that one cover plate was missing on an electrical receptacle.  Personnel present at the time took immediate action to correct this discrepancy.  Also, there was no consistency in identifying switches and receptacles that were fed by the emergency generator.  Some were identified and others were not.  There are not enough light fixtures fed by the emergency generator.

There is a 3-foot violation where shelving is too close to electrical equipment in the basement.

Finding 36:  There are inconsistencies in the identification of emergency powered outlets and switches.

Recommendation 36:  Inspection should be done on the entire facility to correctly identify emergency switches and receptacles.  All plates should be labeled as to what is, and what is not, powered by the emergency generator.

 

Finding 37:  The 3-foot rule was violated in the basement in front of the electrical panels.

Recommendation 37:  Correct the 3-foot rule violation.

 


Finding 38:  The emergency generator does not power the entire fire station.

Recommendation 38:  Evaluate the generator capacity to see if it could feed the entire facility or at least increase lighting from that which is presently available.

 

Fire Station #2 (2300 Sycamore Canyon Road)

 

The Jury visited the station in March 2001.  When the normal utility power was interrupted, it took at least a full minute for the emergency generator to start up.  The generator did not function properly and seemed to be in need of maintenance.  From our observation of light output, the voltage appears to be lower than the normal 120 volts.  Firemen on duty informed the Grand Jury that this problem had been reported a month before.

In the inspection, the Grand Jury discovered that there were no lights in the change-out room and over the desk where the computer is located when the building was on emergency power.  There was no UPS unit for the computer.

 

Finding 39:  The emergency generator was not working properly.

Recommendation 39:  The Montecito Fire District should repair the emergency generator as soon as possible.

 

Finding 40:  Emergency power does not illuminate the change-out room or the computer area.

Recommendation 40:  Connect additional emergency lighting in the change-out room and the computer area.

 

Finding 41:  There is no UPS unit for the computer in this fire station.

Recommendation 41:  Install a UPS unit for the computer.
