Emergency Energy Guidelines for Nebraska School Districts.
Nebraska State Energy Office, Lincoln.; Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln.
Nebraska school districts are advised that they need to prepare for a potential future shortfall in energy, particularly in liquid fuels. This document was written as a guide for planning and policy development concerning energy emergencies in the schools. Energy emergencies are divided into three categories. A phase 1 emergency would be a shortfall of less than 10 percent; phase 2 involves an energy shortfall of 10-20 percent for a particular type of fuel; and a phase 3 emergency would be declared when a shortfall of greater than 20 percent occurs. Items are recommended for inclusion in contingency plans for each type of emergency. Guidelines are also presented for cases in which part or all of a school building is closed; the guidelines include shutdown procedures for maintaining buildings at a minimum temperature during possible winter closures.
