The Office of Emergency Management would like us to share the following message with you. Please help us expand the reach to your community audiences to create greater awareness and engagement of emergency preparedness in case of an PSPS event.
The COVID-19 pandemic reminds us of the importance of being prepared for the unexpected. As we are in peak wildfire season, it’s important to also be aware that a PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) may occur at any time.
Did you know that you may be at risk of a power shutoff even if you do not live in a wildfire high risk area? High temperatures, extreme dryness and record-high winds have created conditions in our state where any spark at the wrong time and place can lead to a major wildfire.
To better prepare for an PSPS event, PG&E will notify its customers and non-customers who have signed up to receive alerts two days before power is turned off. Make sure to have enough supplies that will last a whole week when you receive this alert. Learn more on the PSPS event at http://bit.ly/PSPSFAQ and start preparing today.
