Preparing our communities
BELLEVUE, Wash. (1/27/2017) Puget Sound Energy Foundation is installing high-capacity generators at locations that can become emergency shelters and warming centers, or are currently food distribution centers.
We will unveil the equipment at three different locations on three different days.
The generators -- which are able to power larger facilities -- can be used during emergencies, such as an earthquake. They’ve been awarded to nonprofit organizations in the Puget Sound Energy service area to specifically help those in low income or vulnerable situations.
The dedications will be on February 2 in Bremerton, February 3 in Bellingham, and February 24 on Bainbridge Island. The media is encouraged to join us, and others from the respective communities, to learn more about making our neighborhoods disaster ready:
