As part of their Community Wildfire Safety Program, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) is implementing additional precautionary measures to help reduce the risk of wildfires. If extreme fire danger conditions threaten a portion of the electric system serving your community, it may be necessary to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety. This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).
