Climate change, including California’s ongoing drought, have made wildfires a year-round concern. One-quarter of SCE’s service area is now in a high fire risk area, making wildfire mitigation one of our top priorities. SCE has invested in improvements and technology to help us prevent wildfires, and respond quickly to them when they do happen.
