Lompoc Valley Medical Center has received notice that Southern California Edison is considering a Public Safety Power Shutoff today (Friday, September 6) and Saturday (September 7) within specific areas of Santa Barbara County.
While Lompoc is not within the anticipated shutoff boundary, LVMC is prepared to assist people who are dependent on electricity to maintain their health status.
Because Public Safety Power Shutoff may occur throughout the fire season, it is recommended people have an emergency plan in place, especially if dependent on electricity for healthcare needs. Residents are advised to be prepared for power outages that may last 3-5 days.
