<<<<<<<<SCE POWER SCHEDULED POWER OUTAGES>>>>>>>>
NOTICE FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON - JUNE 30, 2019
Due to projected weather conditions in your area that may cause power outages, SCE is exploring options for a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) of electrical circuits in High Fire Risk Areas (HFRA) and, as a precaution, may also proactively turn off power for public safety in the NORTH PALM SPRINGS area. SCE has not proactively turned off any power at this time. Please be prepared with your personal emergency plan. For more information please visit our website at WWW.SCE.COM. If you see a downed power line, stay away, call 911, and report this to SCE at 1-800-611-1911.
ALL CITIZENS AFFECTED BY POWER OUTAGES IN RELATION TO SCE CREWS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY SCE REGARDING DATES AND LENGTH OF OUTAGES. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING THESE PROJECTS, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED CONTACT SCE DIRECTLY AT 1-800-611-1911.

Please note that the outage times are estimated. Outages may not begin or end at the stated times, and your power may be turned on and off more than once during the outage period. In order to cause you the least amount of inconvenience, we isolate the outages down to the smallest area possible and complete the work as safely and as quickly as we can. Please note that this outage may not be related to any rotating outages that could be occurring in your area.
How to Prepare and Lessen the Impact of an Outage:
• Download the SCE mobile app available on the App Store and Google Play to stay updated on the event status.
• To reduce the potential for loss of data and/or damage to your equipment, be sure to shut off or disconnect all sensitive electronic equipment, such as computers and fax machines, before the outage begins. Please note that a system reboot may be required if your system must disconnect from a server, and turning off or disconnecting some equipment may cause cached data to be lost.
• This outage will affect your alarm systems and may affect private phone systems. Please contact your security and/or phone companies to let them know you have experienced an outage.
• Make sure you can override or manually operate your security gates.
• If you plan to operate an emergency generator during the outage, please call SCE at (800) 990-7788. Knowing you have a generator at your facility will help us protect our employees from possible electrical backfeed.
• If you do not have a generator, you might consider renting a portable one if needed. Please note that SCE cannot reimburse you for this cost.
