Emergencies

Power Failure


In the event of power failure, the Building has an emergency generator which supplies power for certain basic Building functions. The functions include:

  • Activating emergency lights on each floor throughout the Building, including all exit signs
  • Activating all stairwell lighting
  • Activating the Building’s emergency Fire/Life Safety systems as well as the Building’s communication systems
  • Bringing all elevators down to the plaza level (one elevator per bank will remain operative for use by security to assist handicapped persons or to take service crews and equipment into the Buildings needed)

It is seldom necessary to evacuate the Building during a power failure. Unless you are directed to do so through the emergency communication system (or by your floor warden), please remain in your office.

If the power failure is only affecting your suite, contact the Office of the Building at 213.624.3229.
