May 5, 2022

Hurricane season is approaching fast and there already are severe and extreme drought conditions throughout the West that are raising the risk of wildfires. Electric companies undergo power restoration and business continuity planning year-round to prepare for emergencies, and now is the time for all of us to prepare for natural disasters and other emergencies that could cause power outages.  

In this episode, StormGeo Meteorologist Justin Petrutsas provides the forecast for this year’s hurricane and wildfire season and how it will differ from past seasons. Then, EEI Senior Vice President of Security and Preparedness Scott Aaronson explains how electric companies partner with government agencies to prepare for and respond to emergencies and the steps customers can take now so that they are prepared should a major disaster strike.
