Public Safety Power Shut-Off’s (PSPS)

A Public Safety Power Shutoff, also called a PSPS, may occur in response to severe fire weather conditions. Utility providers may shut off power to help prevent wildfire situations. Multiple factors are at play when deciding to shut off power to communities – the priority is community safety. There may be some warning or no notice when power is shut off in response to wildfire risk conditions.

Air Quality Considerations

Air quality over the next several months may be affected by fires here locally and/or away from our area; regionally or another State. Review in advance how you can prepare your home to minimize impact to wildfire smoke to you and your household and when to call 911.

Check with your local fire agency for specific regulations.
