The Los Alamos Division of Public Utilities (DPU) advises residents NOT to show off fuel or electrical service even when planning for potential evacuation.
“We’re conscious that combined messaging has gone out from varied sources on this subject,” Utility Supervisor Philo Shelton stated. “We are attempting to rein that messaging in and get the phrase out to prospects that DPU is the official supply for utility steering and we don’t want anybody turning their very own meters off below any circumstances.”
If fireplace have been to threaten properties inside DPU’s service space, DPU would provoke vital turnoffs. DPU officers discourage prospects from turning off their very own utilities for security causes.
Ought to an evacuation order be put in place, DPU’s employees will monitor the scenario carefully and minimize off utilities on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood foundation as vital.
