Now during any acts of natural disaster – whether that be from storms or fires, PG&E crews have a new tool in their arsenal for their thousands of customers in San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara counties.
This new mobile command center helps provide technological assistance that crews didn’t have as easy access to before. The vehicle comes equipped with cameras, satellites and tv’s, which PG&E says will make their crews more efficient out in the field.
“Where we need to be able to have our crews be able to respond quickly and be supported by all those back-room technologies, ordering equipment technologies additional resources – this will allow that to go right to the job site so if you see it in your area it’s gonna demonstrate that we’re much more quickly able to restore service and power to everyone,” explains Division Director Pat Mullen.
PG&E says the command center is in service now so customers can expect to see it during the next outage.
