Public Safety Power Shutoff Preparedness Resources

We want you to know about resources that can help you prepare for a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).

Can PG&E reach you in case of an emergency?

If we have to turn off your power for safety we will send notifications to the contact information we have on file. Update your contact information at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.

Do you know where to go for PSPS updates?

If you receive a PSPS alert, visit pge.com/pspsupdates to find out:

  • If your address will be impacted

  • When power will be restored

  • What other communities may be impacted

  • Locations of Community Resource Centers (CRCs) where you can get water and snacks, charge your devices and receive up-to-date information

Have you thought about your medical needs?

If you rely on power for medical or independent living needs, find out if you are eligible for and apply to our Medical Baseline program at pge.com/medicalbaseline.

Will you need extra help during a power shutoff?

PG&E’s collaboration with the California Foundation for Independent Living Centers (CFILC) can help you during a PSPS. For more information please visit pge.com/disabilityandaging.
