APS Monsoon Preps

APS encourages customers to follow these five tips to stay alert and safe when storms approach.

  1. Stay informed. Sign up for outage alerts at aps.com and download the APS mobile app for Android and iPhone users. The app provides quick access to many tools including the APS outage map and APS social media feeds. The outage map will provide customers with the most up-to-date information during power outages.
  2. Plan ahead. A little preparation can go a long way when it comes to safety. Create an emergency supply kit that contains non-perishable food items, water, a first-aid kit, a car charger for mobile phones, flashlights, extra batteries and any necessary medication.
  3. Stay away from all downed lines. Treat any downed line as if it is energized and keep at least 100 feet away. If you see a downed line, call 911 first and then APS.
  4. Keep power lines free and clear. Call APS if you notice a tree too close to APS power lines. APS will send a forestry representative to assess the situation within 10 business days. APS prunes or removes trees that are growing into high-voltage electrical distribution and transmission lines along streets, alleys and easements.
  5. Stay safe on the road. If your vehicle comes into contact with a downed power line, stay inside the vehicle, remain calm, call 911 and then call APS.

Liberty Station: Corvette Diner, Stone Brewery, SD Comic Art Gallery 

Take a break from the beach and spend some time at Liberty Station. The once Naval Training Center is now an urban village where you'll find restaurants, galleries, shops and parks to roam.

Corvette Diner

  • With three distinct dining areas, including the Dining Car; a simulated train car that loops old Elvis and Marilyn Monroe movies, the Groovy Room; a glow-in-the-dark '60s throwback room, and the Regal Room; a main dining room showcasing a 1958 Regal Turquoise Corvette---there is something for everyone!
  • Families will enjoy the entire staff dancing to fun and energetic songs, every hour, throughout the dining room. In addition, kids love the 50's theme, it's the perfect opportunity to throw on a poodle skirt or 'Pink Ladies' jacket and get in on the fun. Friday and Saturday night the Corvette Diner goes all out with a Live DJ, and wait staff don their best bouffant hair-do's.
  • Let your kids go wild in the Gamer's Garage (we recommend getting a Dine & Play Package --- Kids Meal + Gamer's Card) while adults enjoy draft beer, wine, house cocktails like The King's Cadillac, Priscilla's Pink Lemonade or even Spiked Shakes!
  • Disc Jockeys, balloon artists, magicians and live entertainment frequent the diner on a weekly basis but the main entertainment draw for kids and grownups alike is the 5,000 square-foot Gamers Garage. Not your typical "arcade", the Gamers Garage has over 50 games including everything from the latest high-tech simulators to interactive pinball throwbacks.

Comic Art Gallery
- The Gallery opened in 2015 with the aim of sharing the love of visual storytelling with the local community.  Our shows and exhibits have featured artworks from legendary comic book artists such as Walt Simonson and Jack Kirby to new up and coming artists.

- The Gallery is home to the Kevin Eastman Studio, a permanent exhibit featuring the personal works and memorabilia of Kevin Eastman, the creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  Inside you can see his personal sketches, props, and the very first Turtle cosplay costume!

- Throughout the year the Gallery teams up with the Fleet Science Center to host CROSSOVER: Where Comics and Science Meet.  The series has comic book pros and local scientists give short talks, followed by open discussion, addressing the creative and scientific sides of comics.  The 2018 season is sponsored by local craft brewer, Pariah Brewery.

- The first Friday of every month the Gallery is open late as part of Liberty Station's FRIDAY NIGHT LIBERTY.  Most of these events the Gallery teams up with a local non-profit literacy advocacy group, Traveling Stories, who host a StoryTent where kids big and small can read and win prizes while parents get to enjoy the Gallery.

- June first through the end of July the Gallery will be hosting a show featuring the work of The New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler.
