Life Support Equipment Safety

Customers using electrically powered life support equipment should visit our Medical Alert List page for more information about Kittitas PUD's medical alert program.

The PUD works to provide highly reliable electrical service. Nevertheless, outages do happen for many different reasons. If you are dependent on electrically powered medical equipment to survive, it is your responsibility to make preparations in advance for interruptions in service.

The PUD maintains a list of customers who have notified us of the use of electrically powered life support equipment in their homes. While being on the list does not guarantee electric service will never be interrupted, we will attempt to contact customers in advance of planned outages. Knowing about medical needs can also make it easier for us to help you during an emergency.
