Hurricane season is in full swing as Dolores gains strength and moves south of the Mexican Pacific coast. The storm is expected to be classified as a major hurricane (Category 3 or above) using the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale, within the next few days, as Dolores continues to grow.  At this time, the storm is moving west-northwest at a steady 5-10 miles per hour and is not expected to make landfall. The storm is causing high surf conditions, rip tides and heavy rains as it moves along the Pacific coast.

                When natural disasters like Dolores strike, it’s a good time to think about the state of your emergency backup power plan. The best time to evaluate your emergency backup power systems is before you need it. Do you have a plan in place if a power outage affects your business? What is the emergency backup plan for your family?
                          ESL Power Systems, Inc. would like to encourage you to educate yourself on the best course of action for your professional and personal life so that you’re prepared when disasters occur.
                          Talk to your family and decide on meeting places should a disaster occur. Put together an emergency kit and make sure that everyone knows where it is. At home, you may be able to get by using candles and flashlights, but can your business be without power for hours? Days? Weeks? Explore your backup power options by visiting our emergency backup power products page.
