Avista’s top priority is the safety of our employees, the public and those at risk fighting the fires that are in our region. During this time, Avista is working with fire officials who may request that power lines be de-energized in certain areas for the safety of fire fighters and/or to prevent the possibility of additional fires if a pole were to fall due to fire. This precaution could result in outages to customers whose property is not imminently threatened by fire.
Outages resulting from de-energized power lines in fire areas are not generally being included in online outage information. That is because estimated restoration times will not be known until Avista crews are allowed by officials to enter the fire zone to assess damage to our equipment. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time for many.
