(OPEN):
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF WILDFIRES, MANY OF CALIFORNIA'S UTILITIES ARE ENGAGING IN "PUBLIC-SAFETY POWER-SHUTOFFS".  BUT, WHILE HIGH-FIRE-RISK AREAS ARE MOSTLY LOCATED IN THE MOUNTAINS, FORESTS, AND FOOTHILL-REGIONS, THE RESULTING OUTAGES CAN AFFECT EVERYONE ON THE GRID.  AND, ONCE THE ELECTRICITY IS SHUT OFF, RESTORING IT ISN'T ALWAYS QUICK.  THAT'S WHY JOY ALAFIA ["AH-LAH-FEE-AH"]--OF THE "WESTERN PROPANE-GAS ASSOCIATION"--URGES ALL RESIDENTS TO HAVE AN EMERGENCY-PLAN IN PLACE...

(ALAFIA):
"
OUTAGES CAN LAST SEVERAL HOURS, SEVERAL DAYS, OR WEEKS--DEPENDING ON WEATHER- AND OTHER FACTORS:  EVERY POWER-LINE MUST BE THOROUGHLY INSPECTED--BEFORE POWER IS RESTORED.  THOSE INSPECTIONS CAN TAKE PLACE DURING DAYLIGHT-HOURS ONLY--AND CANNOT START UNTIL THE EXTREME FIRE-CONDITIONS HAVE PASSED.  PROPANE STANDBY-GENERATORS PROVIDE UNMATCHED COMFORT AND PEACE-OF-MIND--FOR RESIDENTS WHO ARE WORRIED ABOUT LIFE'S NECESSITIES, WHEN THE POWER IS OFF:  THEY'RE CLEAN, QUIET, RELIABLE, AND AFFORDABLE.  AND, THEY ARE ALWAYS READY TO PROVIDE HOMEOWNERS WITH LIFE-SUSTAINING POWER AND SECURITY--WHEN IT'S NEEDED MOST."
