Public Safety Power Shutoff – PSPS
PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff
If extreme fire danger conditions threaten a portion of the electric system serving our community, it may be necessary for PG&E to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety. This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). During a PSPS all customers serviced by an affected power line will have their power shut off. Power outages could last multiple days depending on the severity of the weather and other factors. It is important that you and your family have an emergency preparedness plan in place.
Be prepared to take action if/when PG&E notifies you regarding a possible shutoff.
