Power is a less reliable commodity right now in Northern California. There's been some discussion about how to support -80/-20 storage when power goes out but no campus-wide planning. Some buildings do have back up generator capacity but most do not. There's also the local issue when an individual freezer goes down or needs defrosting or repair.
Has anyone developed any contingency plans or campus-wide resource for cold storage? I suppose it's not a true safety issue but loss of research materials is a grave risk. Some chemicals or synthesis products could become unstable upon loss of cold storage.
