Malibu Offers Free Virtual PSPS Power Outage Preparedness Trainings for Seniors and At-Risk Adults, December 14 and January 13.
Sign up for the City of Malibu's free virtual Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) power outage preparedness training for seniors and at-risk adults, on Tuesday, December 14, 3:30 PM and Thursday, January 13, 3:30 PM.
Power outages are common any time of year in Malibu during high winds, whether caused by SCE proactively shutting down power or caused by tree branches blowing into power lines. If you are a senior, or have mobility issues, a disability or are dependent on a wheelchair or a medical device, you will face additional challenges during emergencies or evacuations. That is compounded during a power outage when phone, cell phone and internet service may be out, limiting your ability to get critical emergency information. Learn how to plan to be prepared!
A free backup battery is available to participating Malibu residents (one per household). The training is open to all, but the backup batteries are available only to City residents.
