Please take the time to read through the following PG&E suggestions for preparing for a Public Safety Power Shutoff.

  • Confirm or update your contact information with PG&E. We’ll send notifications to the contacts we have on file in advance of a shutoff, when possible.
  • Create a safety plan for all members of your family, including pets. A Public Safety Power Shutoff can happen at any time of day or night, due to changing weather conditions.
  • Prepare an emergency supply kit. Include enough water and non-perishable food to last your household one week. Be sure to refresh your kit once a year.
  • Determine if your landline will work during an outage. Keep a mobile phone as a backup.
  • Keep mobile phones and other devices charged.
  • If you have a generator, make sure it’s ready to operate safely.
  • Have flashlights available for your household. Avoid using candles.
  • Have a battery-powered or crank radio.
  • Stock up on the right batteries for items you rely on. Include two extra sets in various sizes.
  • Keep cash on hand and a full tank of gas. ATMs and gas stations may not be available during an outage.
  • Learn how to manually open your garage or any other door that operates with electricity.
  • Talk with your building manager if you live or work in a building that has elevators or electronic key card access to understand how they will deal with a possible multi-day outage.
