Kincade Fire and Power Outages of 2019

In October 2019, associates in Adventist Health were impacted by both the Kincade Fire and rolling PG&E outages across the power grid. Facing wildfires on multiple fronts fueled by historic high winds, the Kincade Fire forced the evacuation of 190,000 residents in Sonoma County and ultimately burned 77,758 acres. This blaze, along with the compounding effects of power outages, caused severe interruption to the lives of our associates and distressed our system. Through the Rapid Response Fund we worked closely with those impacted to address needs immediately and offer a helping hand.
