FEMA 310 - Checklists

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
FEMA 310 has a checklist item that has the following statement:
 
SHUT-OFF VALVES: Shut-off devices shall be present at building
utility interfaces to shut off the flow of gas and high temperature
energy in the event of earthquake-induced failure. (Tier 2: Sec. 4.8.13.4)
 
My question is, what exactly is considered high temperature
energy?  Does electricity fall under this category?
