When there are extreme and potentially dangerous weather conditions, we may need to call a Public Safety Power Shutoff. Community Resource Centers and Community Crew Vehicles may be available for customers in affected areas. These resources will help customers get updated outage information, sign up for alerts, update their contact information and power up their personal mobile devices. Customers will also have access to water and light snacks, and where available, access to restrooms and Wi-Fi. Safe physical distancing practices will be observed.
