Florida's governor signed into law a bill that requires nursing homes and ALFs to have generators. The Tampa Bay Times reports that facilities will be required to not only have the generators but sufficient fuel. Rick Scott signs bills requiring generators in nursing homes, assisted living facilities explains that "[t]he bills require the facilities to keep backup generators capable of running air conditioners when the power goes out. They must provide at least 30 square feet of cool space for each resident – at a temperature of no more than 81 degrees – and keep several days worth of fuel on hand."
With hurricane season starting June 1, 2018, it's time to be prepared!
