CA Wildfires & Planned Power Outages

10/29/2019 (Permalink)

To help control the risk of wildfires in Northern California PG&E has planned power shutoffs when there are gusty winds and dry conditions.  If you have been notified that your home will be affected by a planned electric outage here are some steps you can take to reduce the impact of the outage.

  • Keep important phone numbers in a convenient location in case you need emergency or other assistance.
  • Have a back-up plan to maintain life-support equipment if you have it.
  • Keep a cell phone or hard-wired telephone on hand.
  • Keep a flashlight with extra batteries in a convenient place.
  • Turn off heat-producing appliances such as stoves, ovens, and irons prior to the outage.
  • Protect sensitive electronic equipment by unplugging them.
  • Make sure you can manually open your garage door if it is automated.
  • Make sure food stays cold by keeping your refrigerator doors closed.
  • Notify your alarm company as the equipment can be affected by outages.
  • Keep on hand perishable foods that don’t require cooking.
  • Inform PG&E if you have a generator.

It can be an inconvenience to be without power for days at a time but with proper planning you can ease some of the impact on you and your family.
