Power Outages

Orange County residents rely on working utilities for everyday living and working, so the ability to function without electric power, water, and/or gas if necessary is vital. Power outages often occur during the summer months, when customer demand reaches its peak.

A power outage may:

  • Disrupt communications, water and transportation.

  • Close retail businesses, grocery stores, gas stations, ATMs, banks and other services.

  • Cause food spoilage and water contamination.

  • Prevent use of medical devices.
