Safety & Preparedness for California.

We’re here to help you and your loved ones stay safe around electricity.  From what to do if there’s a downed power line, to how to keep electric cords in good working order,  to free service when  trees are growing into overhead power lines,  turn to us for help in keeping your family safe.

 

Stay 10 Feet Away From Power Lines

Help keep your loved ones safe. Remember to always stay at least 10 feet away from power lines. Stay aware. Stay Safe.

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.

Upgrading Utility Poles

You may have seen crews in your neighborhood lately. We’re inspecting poles, and repairing or replacing those that don’t meet required standards. It’s part of our ongoing investment in maintenance, safety and repair to ensure that we continue to deliver reliable electric service. Our pole-loading assessment takes about 30 minutes, and crews don’t need to access your home or building. Four contractors are authorized to do this work: Cyient (formerly InfoTech), Utility Data Contractors (UDC), RDI Engineering, and IJUS. For your safety, each crew member carries an Edison-authorized identification badge.
