ILCKC has a new initiative to support people with disabilities and older adults during the activation of a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event or other emergency. The goal is to enable you to remain safe while independent in your residence and community. ILCKC is coordinating various programs for all who depend on power for durable medical equipment or livelihood.
