What if Something Happened at the Super Bowl?

The stakes are high and the Super Bowl is being held at U.S. Bank Stadium this week.  But… what if something were to happen?

At Super Bowl XLVII, a power outage caused the biggest game of the year to be delayed 34 minutes.  The players felt they had lost their momentum. This was bad news for everyone – viewers at home, players, and fans at the stadium.  A loss of electricity also impacts things like temperature control, refrigerators, and other large systems that keep operations flowing smoothly.  So, what is the backup plan moving forward?

Emergency lighting

In short, an emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that switches on automatically when a building experiences a power outage.  This has become mandatory in many large, commercial buildings.  It is typical nowadays to see LED lights rather than incandescent bulbs.

According to Benjamin Franklin, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”  Minnesota is going to be tested very soon – the Super Bowl is one of the highest stakes events of the year.  They must ensure that everything is in place and every catastrophe has already been considered and allotted for.

Luckily, Emergency Lite Service Center provides all types of emergency lighting to keep people safe in case of an emergency. Its offerings include five different types of emergency lights, five different types of exit signs, and five different types of batteries. Clients of E.L.S.C. include N.A.S.A., 3M, Honeywell, The U.S. Army and Marine Corps, Amazon, Medtronic, U.S. Bank Stadium, McDonald’s, and many other companies and corporations that have high stakes. These companies are well aware that the best time to plan for the future is now.

And if there were to be a power outage for this year’s Super Bowl in Minneapolis, the exit lights would be ready. We should know, after all, we provided the exit signs for US Bank Stadium.
