Power Outage Precaution

Because of the high winds, there is a strong possibility of power outages in the area. CalArts IT asks you to please unplug your devices from the wall outlets before leaving today to prevent damage from surges when power is restored. While damage from surges is unlikely, unplugging devices, power strips, printers, copiers and other electronics will make sure that no damage occurs.

Please check your equipment before an outage occurs to ensure that you know where the power plug is, where the switch on your power strip is, or to let IT know that you need help determining what to do. If there is a blackout and power is restored, please wait a few minutes before plugging in and turning on devices as there may still be fluctuations in power during that time.
