Public Safety Power Shutdown (PSPS)
Are You Signed Up for Power Shutoff Alerts?
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.
For more information, please visit https://prepareforpowerdown.com. There are two ways to sign up for PSPS alerts:
- If you are the PG&E account holder, please visit PG&E's website and sign up for alerts.
- If you are not the account holder, please visit PG&E's website and sign up using your ZIP code.
