Kentfield and Indian Valley Campuses to Close for PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff

In anticipation of the PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS), College of Marin officials are proactively closing the Kentfield and Indian Valley Campuses at 9 p.m. on Friday, October 25, 2019. With the PSPS expected to begin around noon, all classes have been canceled on Saturday, October 26, and there will be no access to either campus. Once power goes out, the Kentfield and Indian Valley Campuses will remain closed until the day after power is restored to both campuses.

The College encourages students, faculty, and staff to keep in mind that communication systems will be limited during the power outage, emphasizing that every effort will be made to provide updated information regarding status and timing of the anticipated restoration of power using available information channels (COM Connect, email, COM website, social media, and local media outlets). When power is restored, campuses will reopen the following day and classes will resume as scheduled. Notification that campuses have reopened will be sent using available channels. 

All questions regarding PSPS events and extended outages should be directed to PG&E via their website and (866) 743-6589. 

As a reminder, calls to 9-1-1 are for medical or life-threatening emergencies. For non-emergency information and referrals, contact 211 Bay Area by calling 2-1-1 or text MARINSHUTOFF to 898-211 (or MARINAPAGON to 898-211 for Spanish-speaking residents). In addition, vulnerable adults can check Marin County Health & Human Services’ online community resource guide for additional information.

911 vs 211
Call 911 for an immediate response from police, fire department, or emergency medical service teams, for crimes happening now, suspicious activity, and life-threatening emergencies.
