What's Up in Stallion Springs?
November 9, 2019
SCE Outreach Team
Southern California Edison provided a Community Outreach Team at the Stallion Springs Community Center, 27800 Stallion Springs Drive, during the power outages. Their vehicle was equipped with water, snacks and an electrical power station to charge devices. Residents were able to voice concerns and questions, and SCE was also available to address questions in regard to the Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS).
The CSD Police Department, with the assistance of the Stallion Springs Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), opened the Emergency Operations Center in the CSD building and provided services 24-hours a day during the outage. The major focus was on those who rely on electricity for life-sustaining equipment. The EOC site provided electrical power charging for devices and a warming center. In the event of another outage, please note the facility does not have qualified medical personnel to assist with life sustaining equipment and cannot provide any transportation needs. Residents on ventilators, continuous IV, oxygen concentrators and auto feeding tubes will be helped by a group of volunteers. Sleeping cots and the ability to charge medical devices will be available on site.
The Stallion Springs Police department encourages those residents who rely on electricity to sign up for SCE's Medical Baseline program at (800) 447-6620 or at http://www.sce.com/residential/assistance/medical-baseline.
One home was lost due to a fire during the outage. Kern County fire responded and quickly got it under control, put it out and kept it from spreading into the community. Thank you for the fast action.
When activated, the Stallion Springs EOC is open to anyone. You need not be a Stallion resident to obtain services. If you have questions concerning this, you can contact the CSD at (661) 822-3268.
Stallion Springs CERT
Team Leader Sandy Young congratulated the CERT team saying, "There are no words to adequately describe my appreciation to each of you for the amazing support during the PSPS events in our mountain communities. You were there to support our residents and our Stallion Springs Police Department as we dealt with so many unknowns during the power outages, but you just kept on going. Thank you. As tragedy struck Charlie and Roxanne with the loss of their home, you have been there; you have reached out. You are an unbelievable team and have truly made a difference! I know each of us will continue to support them as they go through the steps of rebuilding their lives."
Halloween Hoopla a success
The Halloween Hoopla sponsored by Woodward West and the CSD was a great success in spite of the power outage. Woodward provided generators to support the event until the power returned about 8 p.m. Activities for Halloween went on until 9 p.m., and included a haunted house, SSPOA cake walk, bobbing for apples, caramel apple bar, costume contest and other activities.
