Potential October 23rd Public Safety Power Shut Off

San Andreas, CA...As of 6:00AM the morning of 10/21/19, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) notified the Calaveras County Office of Emergency Services of a possible Public Safety Power Shutdown (PSPS) event that would affect portions of Calaveras County. This afternoon, Calaveras County OES participated in a conference call with PG&E, and confirmed that a PSPS is likely to affect Calaveras County Wednesday around 2:00 PM, October 23, 2019. PG&E is expecting a “weather all clear” sometime around noon on the 24th. Once the “all clear” is received, PG&E can begin inspecting the power lines, as lines are inspected, power lines will be re-energized. This situation is evolving, and further information will follow as it is developed. We expect to have an update from PG&E that will include affected area maps, and Customer Resource Center (CRC) location(s).





PG&E’s outages occur in response to localized weather conditions and will 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 are strongly urged 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 that PG&E has on file. Be sure your contact information is up-to-date with PG&E at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.

Calaveras County is preparing to minimize potential negative impacts of any PSPS events. It is the goal of Calaveras County to continue to provide critical county services during any PSPS event. Residents may experience short interruptions in some non-essential County services during a PSPS event. Update: At this time, San Andreas and the County Government Center are not currently identified in the PSPS shutdown area. As a result, the Calaveras County Government Center is not currently anticipating any interruptions in service. Calaveras County would like to remind 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 http://psps.calaverasgov.us/ 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. Uninterrupted power is required to operate water and sewer treatment plants along with the water distribution and sewer collection system 24/7. Importantly, all County residents must be prepared to respond to the call for water conservation efforts.

•Keep vehicles fueled in preparation for extended outages. Gas station pumps willnot work during power outages.
•Plan for medical needs such as medications that may require refrigeration ordevices that need power.
•Identify backup charging methods for phones and keep hard copies of emergencynumbers.
•Build or restock your emergency kit with food, water, necessary medication,flashlights, fresh batteries, first aid supplies, and cash. Enough supplies for oneweek. Remember that retail stores (grocery, pharmacy, etc.) and restaurants may ormay not be closed during prolonged outages.
•Sign up for safety information on Nixle at nixle.com or by texting your zip codeto Nixle at 888777
•Make sure you can receive updated information from PG&E by updating yourcontact information at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.

Could you please post it and the actual times?'
Thank you.

      Every single one of us ratepayers should sue them in small claims court. They can’t fight us all! PG&E is holding us hostage

      My location- San Andreas/ Mt Ranch. NOAA forecast is 7 mph winds weds, weds nite. This is not a serious wind event by any means.

      Something stinks. It aint the cheese.

      Now PG&E says it will not pay claims for spoiled food from weather disruptions.

      Thx PG&E for nothing.

      I wonder what would happen if everyone refused to pay their bill!?! I understand the need but this is a “short term” strategy, what is their long term strategy?
      Have to start calling this black out season!!!
