Emergency Power Plan
On March 26, 2018 Governor Scott signed into effect Rules 58A-5.036 and 59A-4.1265. Pursuant to the Rules, all assisted living facilities and nursing homes must obtain ample resources, including a generator/alternate power source and the appropriate amount of fuel to sustain operations and maintain safe temperatures for at least 96 hours following a power outage. Both Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities are required to submit their proof of compliance with the rules to the Local Emergency Management Agency for review and approval.
The Agency for Health Care (AHCA) posted an Emergency Power Plan sample format "crosswalk" to their website as a tool for Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities' development of Emergency Power Plans to meet the AHCA and Department of Elder Affairs' Emergency Power rule requirements.
Here's a link to the posting on the AHCA website where the checklists are located http://ahca.myflorida.com/MCHQ/Emergency_Activities/EPP.shtml
