The Whole Community: Planning for the Unthinkable

Power outage threats

Get trees cut back from power lines. I am sure that 90% of the recent power outages were caused by evergreen trees ripping down wires. No government body makes property owners do this. The outages even prevented much cell phone operation. We were totally cut off and in fear. Also, homeland security is compromised because law enforcement cannot be contacted. This storm was the second in a year and the scientists tell us there are more to come. Let's secure our infrastructure for the safety of everyone.


Fearfully yours,
