Public Safety Power Shutoff - Am I Impacted?

 

When there is a high risk for a wildfire, we may temporarily shut off power to your neighborhood to prevent our electric system from becoming the source of ignition. See the interactive map below to search impacted areas as well as locations of our Community Crew Vehicles and Community Resource Centers.

Notes:
1) While we update the list of impacted counties regularly, real-time data may be delayed or limited as field and weather conditions are dynamic and change constantly.
2) Customer counts are calculated by circuits within each county. If a circuit is in two or more counties, the customers will be counted in each county, which will result in an overcount. Final counts for each event are available in after-event reporting, available here.

 

Customer Resources During a PSPS

SCE Community Crew Vehicles and Community Resource Centers are available to support customers during Public Safety Power Shutoffs. We observe physical distancing practices and provide Customer Resiliency Kits, which include PSPS information, light snacks, water, small resiliency devices, and personal protection equipment. We ask that customers wear masks and practice physical distancing. For details about our programs and resources to help you prepare for emergencies or outages, click here.

Powering Off for Wildfire Safety

When there are potentially dangerous weather conditions in fire-prone areas, we may need to call a 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.  

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.

Learn about the role weather plays in PSPS.

Read our PSPS Decision-Making Factors fact sheet to learn more. See SCE’s 2020 PSPS Preparations deck for detailed updates on our PSPS planning and mitigation efforts.
