Angels Camp Prepares for Potential PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoffs

Angels Camp, CA...PG&E has announced that if extreme fire danger conditions threaten a portion of an electric system serving a community, it may be necessary for PG&E to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety through their Public Safety Power Shutoff Program (PSPS). PG&E’s outages will occur in response to localized weather conditions and may not be fully known until the day of the event. The decision to turn off the power and the speed at which it is restored is planned and managed solely by PG&E. Citizens need to prepare for being without power for several days. PG&E will attempt to notify customers of PSPS outages through calls, texts, and emails using the contact information tha t PG&E has on file. Be sure your contact information is up-to-date with PG&E at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.




The City of Angels Camp is planning to minimize potential negative impacts of the PSPS with the installation of multiple back-up generators at critical sites throughout the City. While these back-up generators are planned for installation to assist in the continued operation of public safety, water, and sewer services, there may be situations when service interruptions occur. Uninterrupted power is required to operate City water and sewer treatment plants along with the water distribution and sewer collection system 24/7. Importantly, all City residents must be prepared to respond to the call for water conservation efforts.

During prolonged PSPS outages, the City will work in conjunction with the County to designate a “Resiliency Center” where citizens can go to a cooled environment with water, and access to electricity to charge essential electronic devices. Locations of Resiliency Centers will be announced as they open.

The City of Angels Camp reminds our community that it is important to be prepared and have a plan. Prepare for outages that may occur at any time and may last several days. Visit www.prepareforpowerdown.com for detailed information about preparing for power outages.

PREPARATION TIPS FOR EXTENDED
OUTAGES

• During a power outage, conserve water. Minimize water usage to only critical health and safety needs to help the City of Angels Camp maintain service to its citizens.
• Keep vehicles fueled in preparation for extended outages. Gas station pumps will not work during power outages.
• Plan for medical needs such as medications that may require refrigeration or devices that need power.
• Identify backup charging methods for phones and keep hard copies of emergency numbers.
• Build or restock your emergency kit with food, water, necessary medi cation, flashlights, fresh batteries, first aid supplies, and cash. Enough supplies for one week. Remember that retail stores (grocery, pharmacy, etc) and restaurants may be closed during prolonged outages.
• Sign up for safety information on Nixle at nixle.com or by texting your zip code to Nixle at 888777
• Make sure you can receive updated information from PG&E by updating your contact information at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.
