The severity of Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy convinced many residents of the value of backup generators. Since the HFD cannot risk service interruptions, we’ve long had generators in place. Our new 300 kW diesel generator was recently installed to further ensure emergency preparedness under any conditions.
“The new generator is very powerful and completely self-contained,” District Manager Bruce Smith stated. “It is weather-resistant and in a sound-attenuated enclosure to help eliminate operating noise.”
