Losing Electricity for a Year or Longer ~ What Would Happen?

We rely on electricity much more than we realize. Even if you live “off the grid,” as I did for years, you are still living in a world and a society that is deeply dependent upon electricity.

If the power is out for a few hours, we have all experienced that; of course you’ll be fine. Maybe you will be a little bored and inconvenienced, but if the outage is lengthy and widespread, the consequences can be much more severe, even deadly. What would happen if the electricity was out for a week? Or a year?

Ron Ask, (Attorney Who Created the C-VINE Foundation) and Linda Forsythe discuss the Article posted in C-VINE NEWS. You may access it right here.


Ronald W. Ask, since passing the California State Bar Exam in 1981, has had a long history of serving the Riverside and San Bernardino County communities in many types of law, but particularly in the areas of wills, trusts and estate planning, Medi-Cal eligibility qualifying coupled with asset protection, conservatorships, probate, will contests, trust administration and trust litigation.

Mr. Ask has been a bankruptcy law practitioner since 1982, as well and is a member of The State Bar of California and The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys

For several years, beginning in 1993 and continuing on into 1998, Mr. Ask spoke to groups at many senior centers and other public forums on a regular basis. He has been a guest speaker at the University of California, Riverside, on occasions where panels of persons in the legal community have been scheduled for discussions for the benefit of pre-law students. Mr. Ask has also been invited as a guest lecturer at Riverside Community College on subjects such as Probate and Estate Planning and on Consumer Bankruptcy.

He has also appeared as a “talking head” on Los Angeles based network news and on Coachella Valley Television News on issues such as Advance Health Care Directives and Adoption.
