Safety & Preparedness for California



What Pool Owners, Swimmers Should Know

Faulty pool lighting and bad wiring are the greatest threats this summer, but can easily be eliminated by inspections and maintenance.

Downed Power Line? Call 911

Electricity can be dangerous. For safety’s sake, always consider power lines live or energized, and never touch or approach a downed power line.

Before You Dig, Call 811

Whether you’re planting new trees and shrubs, or installing a new fence, give us a call before you dig. When you do, your underground utility lines will be marked for everyone’s safety. This service is free and it’s actually required by law.


Smarter Outlets Are Safer

Ground fault circuit interrupter outlets (GFCIs) are designed to protect against electric shock in kitchens, baths, and places where electricity can come into contact with water. They shut off electricity when needed—and can help save lives. Talk to your electrician to learn more. 

Joining Forces for Safe Communities

We’re working closely with local police, firefighters, and EMTs because public safety is our top priority.  From electrical-safety training for first responders to a coordinated approach to information sharing, it’s all about keeping our communities safe.

Emergency Preparedness

A disaster or emergency can happen at any time. Is your household ready?
