Enel Distribución activates a preventive plan on the "Day of the Young Combatant"

Published on Tuesday, 29 March 2022

Santiago, March 29, 2022 - To attend to possible incidents that may affect the electricity distribution system in its concession area on the "Day of the Young Combatant," Enel Distribución implemented a preventive plan that began operating at 09:00 today, Tuesday, March 29, and will be extended until tomorrow.

This preventive measure includes permanent monitoring of power grids in more exposed areas, an increased presence of emergency crews, and implementing safety actions that guarantee a stable power supply.

The implementation of Enel Distribución's plan is coordinated with regional government authorities, emergency agencies, and municipalities. It considers additional measures to prevent Covid-19 infection, such as protocols that reduce contact between staff, shifts under strict sanitary precautions, and the permanent use of personal protective equipment.

To ensure the safety of company personnel and collaborators, in the event of supply interruptions, Enel Distribución will not conduct repair works in places with possible risks, manifestations, and crowds. Emergency crew actions will resume once safety conditions allow it.

Due to potential traveling complications, on March 24, the company contacted its electro-dependent customers who live in areas where incidents have historically occurred on this date to offer early installation of generators. Thus, we delivered 200 home generators.

Registered electro-dependent patients have access to preferential customer service, coordinating directly with specialized staff to operate the equipment.

Enel Distribución reminds family members or guardians of electro-dependent people to register to receive personalized and prompt assistance in case of emergency.

The company has a special registration protocol, which can be done through the company's website and commercial offices. Patients reporting their health condition must include a medical certificate signed by the treating physician and health facility administrator.
