The power shutoffs endanger people who rely on power wheelchairs, elevators to exit and enter their buildings, and medical equipment such as ventilators, dialysis, oxygen, and filters. Some people need power 24/7 just to breathe.The legislature must understand these issues and must actively address the concerns of the Disability and Aging communities across California.
