According to City Manager David Kelley, the city was first alerted to the gas shutoff not by PG&E, but by people posting about it on social media. After that, the city contacted the county’s Emergency Operation Center, which hadn’t heard anything about the shutoff prior to the call. “We heard that they consulted with CalFire, but there’s a big question whether they really did or not,” Kelley said. “We think it was kind of a unilateral decision without any notification to the county or the city that it was getting turned off. It was quite a surprise to us.” Looking forward While the bulk of the meeting. was devoted to addressing how Cloverdale responded to the fire and power shutoff, the tail-end focused on how to move forward. “We can’t forget that we were dealing with two different incidents here,” Police Chief Jason Ferguson said. The city was in the midst of the power shutoff when the fire started, and the city’s crisis management shifted from dealing with power and preparing for power restoration to preparing evacuation routes in case Kincade shifted north. evacuation. gas.” an emergency.

' Once the area was annexed into the city he started trying to get Rockin’ A up and running. “This is my first time doing anything like this, so the community response to different items that we should have, things I didn’t know would be popular, has really helped a lot,” he said. Rockin’ A Adventure Café is open on weekdays from 6:30 am. to 4:30 or 5 pm. On weekends, Ambrosini said the hours are likely to be the same, though the kiosk may open a bit later.

It also started pushing some of those people trying to go south that came from the north into our community; They couldn’t go south and they weren’t necessarily trying to go north, or they didn’t have While Cloverdale was settled with folks evacuating north instead of south and southbound travelers, it wasn’t declared an official evacuation center and therefore wasn’t privy to the same resources. “I think the benefit of this community was having groups like the Lions Club do what they did to help citizens as best as they possibly could,” Ferguson said. Moving forward, Ferguson said that the city has upgraded to a fuller version of Nixle that will allow the city to provide more Nixle alerts to citizens signed up for it. The city is also working on putting high-10w sirens into police vehicles and getting back—up generators for city locations such as city hall. He said that they’re also in the midst of working on evacuation plans, in case residents need to evacuate in During the power shutoff and fires, local organizations stepped up to make sure community members were fed —— service groups gathered at the Citrus Fair and cooked up food (some of which was donated from local businesses) for those affected.

Going forward, those in attendance said that more systems need to be in place to aid the community’s more vulnerable populations (non-English speakers, elderly, ill, etc.) in case of an emergency. Suggestions were also made about putting together regular meetings between service groups and nonprofits to help familiarize one another with the services offered by local groups, so as to not duplicate efforts during emergencies. It was also suggested that a phone tree of community leaders be created to help form a network of people and organizations should they need to band together to provide services during an emergency. “Coffee is a lot more than just a drink; it’s cinvaraatssavstiienatn.
