Northern California Power Safety Shutoffs

Another round of public safety power shutoffs is impacting service throughout most of Northern California counties today due to extreme fire danger from wind gusts, dry conditions, and low humidity levels. 

Power shutoffs began last night and are expected to be restored this evening, depending on conditions and the time it takes to inspect / test transmission lines before restoring power.  

The outages are not affecting Hillebrand’s office and warehouse facilities in Benicia or the Port of Oakland and nearby industrial areas.  Most warehouse locations in the American Canyon are also not located in outage zones.  However, the shutoffs could impact order pickups and deliveries at supplier premises and wineries.  If facilities are closed, pending orders would need to be rescheduled until normal operations can resume.   

An outage map can be found at Pacific Gas & Electric’s website here:

Our shipping partner Hillebrand will work to reschedule loads to minimize the disruption wherever possible.  We also urge you to take precautions to protect temperature-sensitive orders with operating reefer or Hillebrand insulation.
