Public Safety Power Shutoffs

PG&E Community Wildfire Safety Program

As part of its expanded wildfire safety efforts in high fire-threat areas like our community, PG&E is doing more real-time monitoring of extreme weather and fire danger conditions, enhancing vegetation management around power lines and conducting accelerated safety inspections of electric infrastructure.

PG&E may also need to turn off electricity when extreme fire danger conditions are forecasted. Be prepared for many days without power and create a plan specific to your situation. If you or someone close to you has a disability and other access and functional needs, you may have to take additional steps to protect yourself and your family during power outages.

This work is being done as part of the company’s Community Wildfire Safety Program, which implements additional precautionary measures following the 2017 and 2018 wildfires to further reduce wildfire threats. More information can be found at or by emailing
