Cupertino OCT26 PSPS Incident

Date: 10/26/19 Start: 7:00 AM End: 1:00 PM Location: Regnart School ARK
Credential Credit (What's this?): Yes

On 24-October-2019, PG&E initiated a PSPS event that impacted 88 Cupertino addresses and 160 unincorporated addresses within Cupertino’s sphere of influence.  The City of Cupertino activated its EOC to Level 3 (Monitor), developed a plan to contact its impacted residents and businesses, and deployed volunteers and city staff into the field to execute the plan.  The city EOC’s primary objectives were:

1.       Public outreach to affected residents and community

2.       Personal contact with affected residents; leave flyers

3.       Establish personal electronics charging stations at City facilities

4.       Monitor the situation; participate in County conference calls

Cupertino Citizens Corps (CARES, CERT, MRC), took the lead to address Objectives #1 and #2 by managing the field responders made up of Citizen Corps volunteers and City Staff. The City provided lists of the addresses expected to be in the outage area. The City’s Office of the PIO developed the information to be handed out.

The initial mission for the Regnart School ARK ICP was to (i) contact all impacted residents and businesses to ensure they were aware of the pending power outage and (ii) inform them of what the City has put in place to support them. 

See the After Action Report for all the details... .  Additional Documentation is available on request.

This Incident spanned 1 day.
