Power Outages Affect Schools (Updated 3:45 p.m.)

All power has been restored and the rolling blackouts have ended at our school locations. 

 

At approximately 3:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, an explosion and fire at the Georgia Power substation on Veterans Parkway and U.S. Highway 301 South caused power outages for Georgia Power and Excelsior EMC customers. All of Bulloch County Schools' campuses had power by the start of the school day this morning.

 

The school system remained in contact with Georgia Power. They  notified administrators that power from the damaged substation was being rerouted to other substations in the area; however, to prevent these other substations from overloading, they initiated rolling blackouts that lasted 30 minutes to one hour at a time throughout the day. This affected our schools Tuesday, but school operations proceeded as normal.

 

Bulloch County Schools' campuses are prepared to handle temporary outages. Each has backup generation to power emergency lighting and alarm systems and cafeterias always have meal options like cereals for breakfast and sack lunches that don't require cooking. Also teachers are prepared to teach with or without technology aids. If phone systems are affected, all schools are also equipped with 911 radio systems to reach local emergency personnel, and administrators have cellular telephones to which calls can be routed. Thank you parents and students for your patience.

 

Thank you as well to our public safety and electric utility personnel for their hard work to resolve this issue.
