Power Outage

General Manager, David Aranda, commented on the outage. He said, "While I understand the need to protect against wildfires, it appears that SCE totally abandoned their responsibilities during the 36 plus hours Stallion was without power. Thankfully, the district and staff at Stallion Springs CSD did not abandon our responsibilities. Chief Gary Crowell worked tirelessly in seeing that people with medical conditions could be cared for by staying in touch with Kern County EOC and dealing with AT&T and other entities regarding their lack of service."

"This should be a wake-up call for those with medical needs to provide critical information to our police department so we can contact them in future emergencies.

"It appears that one big issue and one big need the District has is a large generator that would allow for a proper evacuation site providing heat, water, etc. We will be looking at the costs involved in obtaining this critical need."
