Impacted by Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Events?
During Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events, individuals with disabilities and older adults with access and functional needs are encouraged to reach out to local county government for assistance.
As a secondary option, individuals can also reach out to specific local Independent Living Centers (ILCs) for assistance.
If you rely on power to operate life-sustaining medical devices (CPAP, BiPAP, oxygen, communication device, power wheelchair, etc.), one of the ILCs listed in this web page may be able to assist you with costs associated with:
- Accessible transportation
- Short-term housing support during the PSPS
- A loaner back-up battery system
