Park Place monitoring California Kincade Fire, power outages

Place Technologies is taking proactive steps to prepare clients impacted by California’s Kincade Fire and power outages.

Associated Press reports California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a statewide emergency as wildfires in the north and south of the state destroyed homes and forced almost 200,000 people to flee. In Northern California’s wine country outside San Francisco, the Kincade Fire has grown to about 50,000 acres and is 10% contained. AP reports the governor estimated 180,000 people evacuated because of the fire, which CalFire says destroyed 79 structures. The Tick Fire, burning near Santa Clarita in the southern part of the state, destroyed at least 22 structures and threatened 10,000 more, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said Sunday. About 1 million Pacific Gas and Electric customers lost power — 965,000 because of the Public Safety Power Shutoff, and an additional 100,000 for other reasons, said Mark Quinlan, PG&E incident commander.

Park Place has set up a Command Center in Marlboro, Mass., that is ready to deploy whatever resources clients need in each of the impacted areas. Clients will have immediate access to our supply chain, tech support, field team and suppliers. Our field teams are on “high alert” and will be ready to deploy in the areas most impacted.
