Power Outage Community Resource

PRESS RELEASE 7/21/2021 4:30PM

To support local residents affected by power outages related to the Dixie Fire, an outdoor Community Resource Center (CRC) has been opened at Janesville Elementary School, 464-555 Main St., in Janesville (Lassen County).

The CRC will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21, and from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, July 22.

The CRC will allow affected residents to access resources including:

• A safe location to meet their basic power needs, such as charging medical equipment and electronic devices.
• Up-to-date information about the event.
• Water, snacks and other essential items to reduce hardships to our customers.

To keep our customers and communities safe, all resource centers reflect appropriate COVID-19 health considerations and federal, state and county guidelines.

• Facial coverings are required at all sites and physical distancing is required at indoor sites, regardless of vaccination status.
• Supplies are handed out so customers can “grab and go” but customers may also opt to stay and charge their devices on site.
• In instances of high demand, medical device charging will be prioritized.
• Surfaces are regularly sanitized.
• For the health and safety of the community, we ask customers not to visit a center if they are exhibiting any symptoms of illness.
