How to Prepare

To lessen the impact of an outage on your facilities, please follow these tips:

  • To prevent the loss of data and/or damage to your equipment, be sure to shut off or disconnect all sensitive electronic equipment, such as computers and fax machines, before the outage begins.  Please note that a system reboot may be required if your business must disconnect from its mainframe and/or servers, and turning off or disconnecting some equipment may cause cached data to be lost.
  • This outage will affect your alarm systems and may affect private phone systems.  Please notify security and/or phone companies that provide your business with service of this outage.
  • Make sure you can override or manually operate your security gates.
  • If you plan to operate an emergency generator, please notify SCE before the outage so we can protect our employees from possible electrical back feed.  To notify SCE of a generator, please call 1-(800) 990-7788.
  • If you do not have a generator, you might consider renting a portable one if needed.  Please note that SCE cannot reimburse you for this cost.
