PG&E Planned Power Outage: How it will affect the Richmond Art Center
As you may have heard, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for several Bay Area counties, which could initiate a PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff in the next 24 hours. While Richmond is listed as one of the cities possibly affected, current maps on the PG&E site show us as in the clear. That could change at any time however, so we want to prepare you just in case! Should the power be out, we will unfortunately need to close the Art Center for that day. Any classes scheduled for that day will be rescheduled for a make-up session at the end of season.
We will be tracking the status of the blackouts carefully, but most likely we will only know if the power will be out after the fact. The Contra Costa County site is providing alerts and maps of affected areas HERE. PG&E is also updating maps of affected areas, such as THIS ONE. You can refer to these sites for more information, or you can call our Front Desk at 510-620-6772. If luck is with us, we will have power and you will reach a person or at least our voice mail. If we are closed due to no power, your call
will go straight to the automated attendant system.
We will do all we can to keep you apprised of the situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time!
