On a day that brought severe weather to San Luis Obispo County, the Sheriff’s Office received a $35,000 donation from PG&E for the multi-agency Task Force on Public Safety.

Sheriff Ian Parkinson accepted the donation on Tuesday; it will be used to create public service announcements, help make general plans more available to the public on social media and purchase an additional Community Emergency Response trailer for disaster or emergency situations in the South County.

The task force was established in 2013 with a $75,000 donation from the utility to the Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation and includes members of the Sheriff’s Office, the county’s seven local police departments, PG&E and the Red Cross.
