Through PG&E funding, the Disability Disaster Access and Resource Center (DDARC) program ensures that individuals with assistive and medical technology needs have access to electricity during a planned power outage. The electrical device given is a Yeti 3000 backup generator, or hotel and transportation vouchers when necessary.
The Yeti 3000 is a backup battery capable of powering multiple devices at once for up to 72 hours, depending on the devices. For more information and specs on the yeti please visit the following link.
To enroll, complete the online application and all answers will be forwarded to our DDARC coordinator. Applicants will be chosen based on their medical and power needs and go through an internal DDAR board who will update them on their application progress.
Applicants must be on PG&E’s Medical Baseline Program and either have an emergency plan or be willing to work with staff on crafting one. For more information and to begin the application process visit the following link to the statewide application.
For any other questions about the batteries, other accommodations or anything else related to the program please contact the DDAR Coordinator.
