ORINDA (KRON) — The loss of cell phone service during public safety power shutoffs is unacceptable.
That’s the word from East Bay State Senator Steve Glazer.
During a news conference in Orinda Wednesday, Glazer announced proposed legislation to keep cell towers powered up when PG&E pulls the plug.
Depending on your cell phone carrier, in Orinda during last months PG&E public safety power shutoffs, you either got lucky and did not lose reception.
“We did not — but we had Verizon,” said resident Taylor Hurt.
