SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON EXTENDS RELIEF PLAN FOR FIRE VICTIMS

 ROSEMEAD, Calif., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Edison today announced that it will continue to waive electric bills for its customers who have lost their homes in this week's devastating fires in the Malibu-Topanga, Beaumont and Cherry Valley areas. Those customers will not have to pay for electricity used between their last bill and the fire.
 Residential customers whose homes have been destroyed in the fires should contact Edison at its toll-free line at 800-643-0517. In addition, there will be no deposit charges for fire victims signing up for temporary housing, and no charges relating to the hook-up of temporary power poles during clean-up and construction.
 For other customers facing hardships as a result of the fires, Edison offers special payment arrangements. These customers should contact Edison at the number shown in the upper right hand corner of their electric bill, or listed in the white pages of the telephone directory under Southern California Edison.
 Edison and the Gas Company, along with several other agencies, have opened "utility service restoration centers" in the Altadena and Laguna areas to provide assistance on utility service-related questions. The Altadena Center's toll-free phone number is 800-300-0073.
 Edison crews have been brought in from all over Southern California to restore service in damaged areas as quickly as possible.
 Through its corporate employee volunteer program (VOICE), Edison is coordinating with cities and local relief agencies to send people and resources where they are needed most in the communities Edison serves.
