Technical Bulletin: Enhancing Wildfire Safety with Temperature-Sensitive Labels

Technical Bulletin: Enhancing Wildfire Safety with Temperature-Sensitive Labels
*August 2023*

In the face of increasing wildfire occurrences and their potential impacts on critical infrastructure, utility companies and power generating entities are presented with the challenge of maintaining the safety and reliability of their electricity supply networks. This technical bulletin elucidates the substantial safety and cost benefits of integrating temperature-sensitive labels into safety planning strategies to monitor temperature exposure and potential damage to equipment during and after wildfires.

**1. Understanding the Role of Temperature-Sensitive Labels**

Temperature-sensitive labels, known for their precision and real-time monitoring capabilities, can serve as a robust tool in assessing the impact of wildfires on electricity supply network equipment. These labels are equipped with advanced temperature sensing technology that provides accurate and instant data on temperature fluctuations.

**2. Safety Benefits of Temperature-Sensitive Labels During Wildfires**

**A. Early Detection of Hotspots**: Even small fires can generate extreme heat that threatens the structural integrity of equipment. Temperature-sensitive labels can identify hotspots and critical temperature levels early, allowing timely intervention to assess equipment failure or damage.

**B. Post-Fire Assessment**: Following a wildfire event, temperature-sensitive labels offer a comprehensive assessment of equipment's exposure to high temperatures. This data assists safety planning staff in making informed decisions regarding the replacement or refurbishment of potentially compromised equipment.

**3. Cost Savings and Operational Efficiency**

**A. Preventive Maintenance**: Timely identification of equipment damage or degradation through temperature-sensitive labels allows for targeted preventive maintenance, minimizing downtime and costly emergency repairs.

**B. Asset Management**: By accurately assessing the impact of wildfires on equipment, utility companies can make strategic decisions regarding the repair, replacement, or optimization of assets, optimizing resource allocation and extending equipment lifespan.

**C. Minimized Operational Disruption**: Proactive use of temperature-sensitive labels aids in quickly identifying areas of concern, preventing operational disruption due to equipment failure and facilitating a swift return to normal operations.
