ARTICLE. Wonder why Devils Slide was closed overnight?
There is a backup battery that is designed to last 90 minutes. But why, in an area prone to electrical outages, was no generator included in a tunnel that has lots of safety features, that require electricity to work. Without power the call boxes, fire alarms cameras and smoke sensors won’t work.
Additionally, there are 3 tunnel operators staffed at the south-east end of the tunnel 24/7/365. Again, with no power they won’t be able to see or do anything.
Call Jerry Hill’s Office at 650-212-3313 to let them know what you think.
I called their Communication office for an answer to this question…Stay tuned.
