How to call Script Upon Power Loss

UPS - FMS Shutdown Script


What I need is a way to call this script upon power loss?


I have a sh script that Closes FMS (17) upon activation. What I need is a way to call this script upon power loss. I will have a UPS for a Mac Mini running FMS 17. 


I have been in contact with APC and they advised there is no interface to customize for Mac OS X.


I need some advice from someone who has a script that detects when the computer is being powered by the UPS Battery. A sample would be even better on how to do this. Thanks-Mike
