Lara Petitclerc-Stokes & Jeff Anderson from Oregon Trail Electric Cooperative, along with Jason Yencopal from Baker County Emergency Services, joins the Morning Buzz to discuss emergency planning for the upcoming solar eclipse in Eastern Oregon. We discuss community-wide plans in place to handle traffic overflow and demand for emergency services during the eclipse weekend especially.

Electrical safety was also brought up to ensure that emergencies are far and few between, as visitors to the area are with us. The importance of proper use and limited use were highlighted, since the eclipse occurs during the heightened period of fire season.
