Why are we conducting an EPO?
The EPO drill will test our ability to immediately shut off power to the Data Center in the event of an emergency. The ability to shut off power immediately is critical in ensuring the safety of emergency responders to prevent electrocution.
Since we recently completed a significant renovation to the electrical power/generation system in the Data Center, we must verify that we still have the ability to turn off the power to all equipment from a single switch.
If you have questions, please contact the LTS Help Desk at 610-758-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org
