HA Action 2.2 Advanced Thermal Safety During Emergencies
Provide opportunities to moderate the indoor building temperatures in times of gridsupplied power and/or fuel outages, heat waves, shelter-in-place emergencies and other extreme events when local self-reliance is critical.
Maximum + Minimum Temperature Management: (8 points)
Except as noted below, during periods of grid-provided power and fuel outages, provide operable windows and/or non-powered natural ventilation and passive cooling and/ or provide adequate power to operate ventilation fans and/or provide active cooling adequate to maintain indoor temperatures at or below 90 degree F heat index in hot seasons. In cold seasons provide passive heating and/or heat retention strategies and/or back-up power and fuel that maintain interior building temperature at, or above, 60 degrees F.
Temperatures must be maintainable for four continuous days without grid-supplied power or fuel.
For Hospitals and Nursing Homes
Maintain an 81 degree F heat index maximum during the hot season, 71 degree F minimum during the cold season (required by federal law for nursing homes).
General residential buildings, facilities and areas
Maintain a maximum 81 degree F heat index temperature during the hot season.
Maximum + Minimum Temperature Management for facilities “Safe Zone” for Shelter-in-place Emergencies: (12 points)
During periods of grid provided power and fuel outages, maintain the temperatures and conditions identified above in a portion of the facility identified as a “Safe Zone” providing at least 20 square feet of space per regular occupant. For Hospitals provide 30 square feet of space per regular occupant. Meet all minimum local, state, or federal regulatory criteria that may exceed this criteria for specific occupancy and use types.
Manage other space to prevent freezing of water and infrastructure vulnerable to freezing.
