Southern California Edison has advised the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services of approximately 12 circuits that are being monitored for possible shutoff on Monday October 26, 2020, from 9:00AM-6:00PM. During this timeframe, electrical circuits may be preventatively deenergized during high wind / high fire danger times. Once deenergized, these circuits will need to be inspected by Southern California Edison and this process may take several hours before electricity is restored.

Residents with disability, access or functional needs that are power-dependent, should prepare now by obtaining back-up power supplies for critical medical equipment or making alternate plans before power disruption occurs. Southern California Edison operates a medical baseline program by which customers receive a discount on their monthly bills as well as assistance purchasing backup power supplies.
