Public Safety Power Shutoff: Let’s be prepared together!
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requires utilities like PG&E to turn off power to some areas if there is a high possibility of transmission lines becoming involved in a wildfire. Please review the following links for more information on how to be prepared for a Public Safety Power Shut-off (PSPS) event. If you or someone you know is medically dependent on electricity, please have them call PG&E at (1-866-743-6589) and ask about what you/they need to do to be prepared.
