Note: While we do our best to avoid outages, we cannot guarantee that the power will always be on. Outages happen. SDG&E will attempt to notify the patient in advance of a state-directed power outage. However, if the patient requires life support equipment, he/she should make arrangements for a backup power supply in case of an outage.
