Power Outage Update

In response to this morning's power outage, Modoc County Public Health Department was proactive in mitigating the potential effects of the hazard by checking on the status of healthcare facilities to ensure the backup generators were functioning and communication lines were working. MCPHD was also preparing to reach out to community members who are registered in the SAFE Program to provide necessary support.
