Important Emergency Preparedness Plan Information

October is National Fire Prevention Month and it serves as an excellent time to re-examine your emergency preparedness plan.  October is also a month when our region seems to experience more high winds and severe weather conditions, so having a power” plan should be one of your top priorities at this time of the year.
Make sure you have your “power” plan ready today!

Have a Plan
Using a small standby generator for electricity during an outage can keep your home and business running smoothly.  Find tips in order to run your generator safely and properly by visiting our generator safety page.
Don’t Be in the Dark
Hazardous weather conditions and high winds are two common causes for power outages.  SDG&E’s nearly 150 weather stations across the county help monitor wind and weather along power lines and this information is updated several times an hour on our website.  To view outages in your area, visit our outagemap.

ICWJ Faith Leaders and Members Are Invited!

Wednesday, October 9, 2013
8:3O a.m.
For nearly a year Pauma Casino Workers have been organizing for a voice on the job.  On Wednesday, October 9th ICWJ faith leaders and members are invited to join workers as they present signed petitions to the tribal leadership and casino management.  This is the first time workers will publicly request a fair process to decide whether to have union representation without management interference and intimidation.  With this action, casino management will know which workers are supporting the organizing efforts – placing these courageous workers at risk of retaliation.  It is important for people of faith to be present, bear witness, and voice our support of workers.

Your presence strengthens workers
and truly makes a difference!
