SST LTRFirst, and foremost, Thank you.  Secondly - power outages.

The prompt and professional response of fire fighters, public safety officers and PG&E staff helped save our town and many other outlying areas.

Thank you.

Many of us away from the fires also went through days of no electricity.

Since wooden power poles were burned, or were in danger of falling on safety workers, power was necessarily out.

Now, PG&E is quickly replacing these poles, but, unfortunately, again using wood. If metal, cement, or other non-flammable poles would be used in our vulnerable areas, at least the widespread power outages could hopefully be reduced. Many other countries use these fireproof poles. Although fireproof poles may be more expensive initially, considering the cost of replacement of wood poles multiple times, a new plan is needed.

I have recently contacted our state legislative representatives about this matter- Rep. Bigelow and Sen. Berryhill.  My request was for legislative action requiring PG&E to use fire resistant poles in areas such as ours.

Perhaps more email to our representatives would spur the action needed.
