District will remain in severe response as ICL scores show improvement

Update: On Sept. 21, the Incident Criticality Level score rose to 34, which is in the severe level. 
Team Grant,

This week, the Incident Criticality Level score fell to 29, which is in the moderate level. The lower score is very encouraging as Grant PUD's efforts, combined with the efforts of those in our region, are showing a reduction to the threat of Coronavirus.

However, our Incident Management Team in consultation with the senior executives, have determined that we will not reduce our response to the Incident Command Level at this time, given that we are waiting to determine impact of Labor Day and back-to-school activities in the region, as well as the new threat of wildfire smoke.

We are hopeful that the ICL score will continue to remain in a moderate range and that we will be able to adjust our response to a more moderate position in the coming weeks once we have more data showing that we are now well down a positive path. Please continue making great efforts to reduce the risks of Coronavirus to you and your family during work and personal time.

If you have concerns or questions, please contact your supervisor.


David Ponozzo, Incident Commander
