Central Coast community members continue to prepare for emergency power shutoffs in case they were to happen here.
A meeting was held Monday night in Santa Maria to better educate the public on public safety power shutoffs.
Representatives from Southern California Edison and PG&E were there to answer any questions.
Community members attending the meeting say they believe everyone needs to be aware of the potential power shutoffs.
"I think I don't hold it against them if they have to do it. I am glad that they are letting us know, but I want us to know and make sure that everybody has a plan," said Santa Maria resident Sarah MacDonald.
These meetings have been taking place over the past few months.
