Are you prepared for power outages? If gusty winds and dry conditions, combined with a heightened fire risk, threaten a portion of the electric system serving our community, PG&E may need to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety. This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff. PG&E is asking all of its electric customers to be prepared for these possible public safety power outages. Extreme weather can last several hours or days. For planning purposes, PG&E suggests customers prepare for outages that could last longer than 48 hours. PG&E’s goal, dependent on weather, is to send customer alerts 48 hours in advance, 24 hours in advance and just prior to shutting off power. PG&E will do so through automated calls, texts and emails. Make sure PG&E has your current contact information by visiting pge.com/mywildfirealerts or calling 1-866-743-6589. You can also find tips for evaluating your home and preparing an emergency plan to be ready for the growing threat of wildfire and possible power outages at pge.com/wildfiresafety.
