Silicon Valley Independent Living Center – PSPS
As California experiences different bouts of weather, we are subject to wildfires and high winds, causing public safety power shut-offs (PSPS). SVILC partnered with PG&E to provides financial and direct services to individuals affected by PSPS, who require the use of Assistive technology (AT) Durable Medical Equipment (DME).
SVILC is a hub that you can notify if you are using a device or equipment that requires electricity to sustain yourself, such as an oxygen machine, refrigerator for medication, etc.
If you have a disability that may be significantly affected by a power shut off, please contact our office to be listed on our Public Safety Power Shut-Off (PSPS) Event Call/E-mail List.
Our list is here to call and notify you if you are in a potential shut off zone and provide further safety information.
