Solutions for disruptive power failures encouraged
FONTANA – (INT) – Foothill communities below and near the Cajon Pass have been hardest hit by preemptive power failures (PSPS) as repeated windstorms threaten to whip up destructive wildfires.
Southern California Edison (SCE) has been taking no chances that its electrical equipment could start new fires.
Fontana’s Office of Emergency Management is compiling statements from those affected by the power outages. Residents who have been impacted are being asked to submit a detailed summary of the consequences of PSPS episodes to email firstname.lastname@example.org. City officials say the statements will be used to advocate for a solution to keep the power on along with requests relief at the state level.
A Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) community informational meeting has been scheduled on Wednesday, November 13th at the Jessie Turner Center from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. A representative from SCE will be present to listen to concerns, answer questions, and explain the process behind power shutoffs.
