Are You Signed Up for Power Shutoff Alerts?
As you may already be aware, PG&E is implementing some aggressive measures to decrease the risk of wildfires sparked by or aggravated by commercial power equipment failures. These measures are called ‘Public Safety Power Shutoffs’ (PSPS) and can result in a temporary shutdown of power anywhere in California. These power losses could be as long as 3 to 7 or more days, depending on what triggers them. Everyone in the state needs to prepare for and understand how to respond to these potential PSPS events.
There are two ways to sign up for PSPS alerts:
- If you ARE the PG&E account holder, you can log into your account and sign up for alerts (ENGLISH/ ESPAÑOL) here.
- If you are NOT the account holder, you can click here to sign up using your ZIP code. (ENGLISH/ ESPAÑOL)
Over the next few months the Cambria Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will distribute information provided by Pacific Gas & Electric Company to help you prepare and, if necessary, respond to a ‘Public Safety Power Shutoff’ (PSPS).
