Powering Off for Wildfire Safety

When there are potentially dangerous weather conditions in fire-prone areas, we may need to call a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event. During these events, we will proactively turn off power in high fire risk areas to reduce the threat of wildfires. Turning off our customers’ power is not something we take lightly, but PSPS events are one of the ways we can better ensure the safety of the public, our customers, and our employees.  

If there is a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff in your area, we want you to be informed.

 

Stay informed about PSPS events and other outages.

Don’t have an SCE account? You can still get alerts about PSPS-only events for specific ZIP code(s).

How do PSPS events work?

When forecasts indicate elevated weather conditions, we’ll begin assessing the potential impact to affected areas. We’ll analyze historical data to help predict the likelihood of a wildfire occurring, closely monitor weather watch alerts from the National Weather Service (NWS), and place incident responders on alert, if needed. Disclaimer: Erratic or sudden onset of conditions may impact our ability to provide advanced notice to customers.

How can I find out if I live in a high fire risk area?

A PSPS event may be called if you live in an area that has been deemed as a high-fire threat area by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The CPUC has created maps to help you find out if you live in one of these affected areas.

More information about how these maps were created can be found on the CPUC’s website.
