    Starting this evening through Friday, we may experience some PG&E PSPS power shutdowns at select
    sites throughout Northern California. Please be cognizant of this and any “on-battery”
    announcements which infers we need to keep the network idle to preserve battery reserves in case
    of an emergency and/or priority traffic.

    Tomorrow morning, Thursday the 15th, the system might be used for “The Great California Shakeout”
    to link with the PAPA system in SoCal to support an exercise between continuing care retirement
    communities/facilities in SoCal and NorCal. This should take place between 9am-11am and may be
    shorter than that. Please yield to any traffic connected with the event.

    Saturday, There will be an exercise involving CalDART on the network between 9-12 Noon. Again,
    please yield to any traffic connected with this event.

    Thank You.
