Automatic Shutdown during Overheading -- Windows 2012 Server, Dell T630 ?

I already have a "Server Room" temperature device that
automatically emails and calls me when the TEMP goes
above 75 degrees, allowing me to fix whatever
AC issues I might have.

What "Automatic Shutdown during Overheating"
features can I setup on my Windows 2012 Server,
Dell T630 so I don't have to worry about
the below happening ?

Maybe some type battery backup that automatically
cuts off the power supply after the room reaches 90
degrees, I do not need it to GRACEFULLY shutdown,
it can FORCEFULLY shutdown if needed

 1. server room AC fails, internet fails, but power
    is still on, room goes to 90 degrees, but I never
    get emails and calls since my "Server Room"
    temperature device cannot connect to the INTERNET

 2. I get automatic email at 2am on Saturday morning,
    but cannot drive the 40+ minutes to work to manually
    shut down the servers since it is ICEY outside and my
    home VPN internet connection is down so I cannot
    remote in to shutdown the servers

On CPUs with thermal throttling via frequency scaling -- which is most of them manufactured in the last ten years -- the CPU should cut back its speed when it overheats.  This happens automatically and the system will continue to run, though at an effectively reduced speed.
