PG&E, Providing Funding to Local Fire Safe Councils to Help Prevent, Prepare for Wildfires

San Francisco, CA...In an effort to help prevent wildfires and protect communities, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is joining forces with local Fire Safe Councils to enhance the safety and preparedness of local communities. PG&E is providing $2 million to fund local Fire Safe Council projects to reduce the threat of wildfires and help keep communities safe. "Years of drought, extreme heat and 129 million dead trees are creating a 'new normal' in our state and we must continue to adapt to these challenges. We appreciate our continuing partnership with local Fire Safe Councils to complete this important safety work. These projects create fuel breaks to protect communities, clear vegetation from evacuation routes, and help underserved customers create critical defensible space to protect their homes from fire," said Kevin Dasso, PG&E vice president of Electric Asset Management.




Since 2014, and including this year, PG&E will have provided $13 million to local Fire Safe Councils and 501(c)(3) organizations to fund more than 200 projects in Northern and Central California. Projects have included fuel reduction, shaded fuel breaks, emergency access and wood-chipping programs. This year, PG&E is providing funding to local councils and nonprofits to complete approximately 30 projects in 24 counties. Projects must be completed by October of this year. A list of Fire Safe Councils receiving project funding is below.

Community Wildfire Safety Program

In addition to partnering with local Fire Safe Councils, PG&E is preparing for wildfires through its new Community Wildfire Safety Program. The company launched the program in March as an additional precautionary measure intended to reduce wildfire threats and strengthen communities for the future. Through the program, PG&E is bolstering wildfire prevention and emergency response efforts, putting in place new and enhanced safety measures, and doing more over the long term to harden its electric system to help reduce wildfire risks and to keep its customers safe.

How cool is this? The people who's penny pinching has caused people to die in fires, billions of Dollars in damage, and caused fires in the first place.
Then they get a fine for killing people caused by their neglect that we all pay for anyway because they raise the rates.

      It was a good read wasn't it? A criminal on drugs, pointing a weapon at law enforcement. Rumor has it the "victim" was a rapist, thief, druggy.
      One less criminal that won't attack a child ever again, I'm sure that child's parents when reading of his recent event will rest a little easier every night that he'll never rape someone elses child ever again.

This is an exact example of the deviant thinking and selfishness that is so evil it spoils everything for everyone. Right down low enough to spoil a website for the whole community.

Those who are forcing the New American Civil War are the ones who want to stop others from having the ability to protect themselves and family. Those who allow their mouth to override their ability to defend themselves mentally or physically.
