Consumer Testimonials

“If there is one center that does an absolute phenomenal job on [Disability Disaster Access & Resources Presentations], it is ILRSCC – Independent Living Resources of Solano and Contra Costa Counties. Ron Halog is a machine. He knows every single person I know in Solano and Contra Costa Counties, which are my local local communities. Every community partner here knows about the DDAR program, because Ron has called them, he has introduced himself, he has done trainings, he has done in-services – both in-person and remotely. He is amazing!”

We love serving our consumers. See how we have helped a few of our consumers in Solano & Contra Counties.

We want to thank Independent Living Resources and especially Ron for providing the portable backup battery for my husband’s medica needs in the event of power outages. The online application was straight forward and we were kept updated throughout the process. Knowing we now have life sustaining battery backup support puts our minds at east.

Thank you again for your amazing support.

-AV, ILRSCC Consumer

I want to say thank you for the battery! It has really helped me out with all the power outages lately. The peace of mind I have when I go to sleep knowing that my BiPAP and other medical devices will work even if there’s another power outage, can’t be put into words. I truly appreciate it

-DM, ILRSCC Consumer

Before having the battery backup I worried about power blackout and if I was going to be able to use my CPAP. It is a lifesaving device. I also considered that we would have to go stay with someone or in a hotel during a power outage. This last weekend our power was out 12+hours. I was able to sleep worry free. If we needed heat from our portable heater, thank God for the power front the battery backup that can be used. I’m very grateful to Ron and ILRSC and PG&E for providing this assistance.

-PP, ILRSCC Consumer

Just wanted to let you know I’ve been using the battery all week to run my CPAP machine and it’s working great. After a week of using it, it’s only down to about 50% of the battery. I appreciate you taking the time and helping me with the program and the new policies. It’s a relief knowing that if there is an extended outage overnight that I won’t have to worry.

-C, ILRSCC Consumer

I wanted to share a story with you about how useful the battery for my CPAP machine is for our home, that I received from ILRSCC.

My 89 year old mom lives with us and yesterday morning she was reclined in her motorized recliner. The power went out to our home and she was stuck in her chair. My son carried the generator (battery) downstairs and I hooked up the chair to generator and was able to get her out of the chair safely. I don’t know what I would have done without the generator.

Thank you and ILRSCC for all you do.

-ILRSCC Consumer

I just wanted to express our deepest thanks for bringing us the extra batteries.  We’ve already had three power outages. This last one lasted almost ten hours.  We were able to get though it so well only because we had the extra batteries to run all of my daughter’s equipment.

-EP, ILRSCC Consumer

The individualized support provided by the back up battery system by PG&E/MCE through the ILRSCC program has given me great peace of mind in the event of Planned Power Outages or potential emergency power shut off. This system allows me to manage my chronic health issues within my own home with dignity and independence. The battery back up affords me the ability to maintain my daily treatment protocol for my chronic illness which requires electricity to operate. I will not need to relocate in the event of a power outage, which would also be a major challenge with my condition. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in this support network. Working with Ron Halog has been very comfortable and informative especially the video on the website explaining how the unit functions.
Thank you for this wonderful community service.

-AT, ILRSCC Consumer

I got some great takeaway tips and recommendations. Thank you for an excellent presentation!

-ILRSCC Consumer

Great and energetic training! Lots of great information and good homework in order to be prepared.

-ILRSCC Consumer

Thank you for being so helpful in securing my mother’s CPAP use during power outages. I have been shocked with the number of power outages that we have experienced since moving from one end of Moraga to the other. Our solution to power loss, was to house my mother at my sister’s home in Lafayette or my brother in San Ramon. Both options being hard on my mother and he live in taxi service.

Since the placement of the battery in our home we have not had the need to use it, but the peace of mind it provides for her and us is immeasurable. In a test run of our battery, we plugged in a small light for her to use in the event she needed to use the bathroom. I had not thought of this benefit initially, but after our “dry run” it is obvious that it heightens her safety.
