Public Safety Power Shutoff ZIP Code Alerts

Get PSPS alerts based on a ZIP code

Sign up to receive alerts from SCE about Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events for a specific ZIP code.

Why should I sign up for these alerts?


These alerts will notify you about possible PSPS events for the requested ZIP code. They may be helpful when you want to stay informed about a ZIP code other than your primary residence.

For example, you may want to sign up for this type of alert if:

  • Your landlord or property manager is the account holder for your electric service.
  • You are a caretaker for someone who needs electricity for medical needs, but you do not have access to their SCE account information.
  • You or your organization provide critical care or services dependent on electricity.
  • You are in the area for a vacation or business

While we will send a notification to all recipients in the entire affected ZIP code, typically only some customers within that ZIP code will experience a PSPS Outage. If you are an SCE customer and want to receive notifications for all outages, including more detailed alerts about PSPS events, update your notification preferences in My Account.
