During extreme weather or other extreme fire danger conditions, California’s utility companies including PG&E may need to turn off power to certain areas to reduce the risk of wildfires. These proactive power outages are known as Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). While PG&E hopes to notify affected customers 48 hours in advance of any PSPS, fire threats and other extreme conditions can quickly change, and actual notice may be significantly less than 48 hours.
If PG&E and public officials do not have your current contact information, they may not be able to reach you, visit PG&E's website for instructions on signing up for their alerts. Calaveras County must also be able to effectively alert you during an emergency or disaster. Sign up for County notifications today using the Alerts button below.
