PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff & Air Quality Advisories Impacting Your Area
As of Friday afternoon, the parts of Assembly District 19 affected by the Public Safety Public Shutoffs (PSPS) include: South San Francisco and Daly City.
Due to wildfire risk, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) said today (October 25) it is continuing to monitor a potentially powerful and widespread dry, hot and windy weather event expected to begin impacting service on Saturday between 6 and 10 p.m. and lasting until midday Monday.
PG&E will need to turn off power for safety several hours before the potentially damaging winds arrive. It’s important to note that as this weather system sweeps from north to south over a period of two days, PG&E customers across Northern and Central California will feel the effects of hot, dry winds at different times, which means outage times will vary, as well.
Ways to Prepare:
- Check here to see if your home, school, work or family will be impacted
- Write down important phone numbers
- Fully charge all devices, including back-ups
- Make sure to have fresh batteries on hand
- Be sure to plan for medical needs, such as medication that requires refrigeration and devices that will need power
- Make sure emergency kits are stocked and up-to-date
- Make sure back-up generators are ready for use
