PG&E's PSPS Shut Off Scaled Back to Portions of 16 Counties & Amador Off the List!!

San Francisco, CA...Customers in portions of 16 counties have been given a 24-hour notification by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) about a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) starting Wednesday morning. Six counties won’t be impacted Customers in six other counties, originally notified that they would be part of the PSPS, have now been notified that they will not lose power, as weather conditions improved. Those counties no longer impacted are: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Mateo.




These customers will be contacted by PG&E via text, email or automated phone call to confirm that they will not be impacted by the PSPS. Weather forecasts continue to be dynamic with significant variation across different portions of PG&E’s service area. As an example, some parts of PG&E’s territory are under a Red Flag Warning issued by the National Weather Service, while other locations are subject to a Winter Storm Advisory.

High fire-risk conditions are forecast to begin early tomorrow morning and continue into Thursday. High winds are currently expected to subside Thursday mid-morning. PG&E will then inspect the de-energized lines to ensure they were not damaged during the wind event. PG&E will safely restore power in stages as quickly as possible, with the goal of restoring most customers by end of day Thursday, based on the current weather conditions.

While there is considerable uncertainty regarding the strength, timing and humidity levels associated with this weather system, the shutoff is currently expected to impact approximately 181,000 customers in the following 16 counties: County Customers Medical Baseline Cities or unincorporated areas with some customers potentially impacted

On PG&E’s website, the map provides a visual representation of potentially impacted areas.
The best way for customers to confirm if they will be or won’t be affected by a PSPS is to use
the online address lookup tool at www.pge.com/pspsupdates.
Timeline for safety shutoffs
If PG&E calls the PSPS, the shutoffs will take place in phases beginning Wednesday morning
through early afternoon, based on local weather conditions.

Customer notifications and impact
The company began notifying potentially impacted customers yesterday (48 hours prior) and
notified them again today, 24 hours and four hours prior. Customers who have provided their
contact information to PG&E were notified by phone, text and email.

It's important to remember that customers not impacted by the PSPS may experience power
outages due to PG&E equipment damaged during this weather event; those customers will
not be notified in advance.

It is also very possible that customers may be affected by a power shutoff even though they are
not experiencing extreme weather conditions in their specific location. This is because the
electric system relies on power lines working together to provide electricity across cities,
counties and regions.

Community Resource Centers
To support customers in the affected areas, PG&E will open several Community Resource
Centers (CRCs). Restrooms, bottled water, electronic-device charging and air-conditioned
seating for up to 100 will be available at these facilities. Locations are below, and more are
being confirmed. The locations of CRCs will be available at www.pge.com/pspsupdates.
The following services will be provided at our Community Resource Centers:
• Snacks (non-perishable)
• Ice
• Blankets (upon request)
• Heater
• Restroom facilities
• Charging stations

How Customers Can Prepare
PG&E is asking customers to:
• Plan for medical needs like medications that 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 flashlights, fresh batteries, first aid supplies and
cash.
• Keep in mind family members who are elderly, younger children and pets.
• Learn more about wildfire risk and what to do before, during and after an emergency to
keep your family safe at PG&E’s Safety Action Center
http://www.safetyactioncenter.pge.com/.

Don't forget to say Fuck You to the state too, who's property all the fires started
Posted on: 2019-11-20 05:06:57   By: Anonymous
 
PG&E put profits to it's upper management, it's CEO and their stock holders instead of up grading their facilities and needed more around transmission lines.
They are not alone to blame for these gigantic fires we have had. The blame also goes to the governor's of this state for decades of neglecting our forest. All of these fires? Started on staye, and cities, towns property not FEDERAL land that our finger pointing governor Newsom is so good at, but our own property.
So where's the courage in admitting that GOVERNOR? No where to be seen.
Just to show how our democrats are, our state is suing the e cig company JUUL for targeting minors. The state will win no doubt. Do you think the state would give one red cent to a Calif citizen who may have a lung disease caused by JUUL? Nope, it won't go to any victim, it will go in their pocket, just like the hundreds of millions from suing over the opioid addiction. Not a red cent to a CA citizen.
We've known for decades of being ignored for not enough of the state's attention and money on our forest and on our water shed as the city slickers have stolen our wster, shipped it down south to water golf courses in the desert and tell us we have to conserve.
This state is all about taxing us and spending it on the city slickers while we get the bare minimum of E V E R Y Y H I N G
This is why people in the country want to split our state.
It's all BECAUSE OF THE CORRUPT DEMOCRATS
Shells Bells we are even taxed on illegal immigrants GIVING THEM FREE HEALTHCATE??? Ad our own US residents have to buy healthcare and if WE DON'T? WE'RE FINED ??
Unacceptable. That's why we are leaving CA we will find a new state in the country, for American citizens, and probably not under these corrupt democrats who always point their fingers at someone else.

    Watershed Removed

    Clear cutting is a wholesale removal of our watershed .
    Trees hold water for the Summer, when there are no roots, canopy, bare ground soaked with herbicide for mono culture trees, you have destroyed an eco sysyem, as well as the water shed.

    Be Prepared

    If you live in the Mother lode, you should have supplemental heat and cooking, lighting.
    A generator is suggested, heat from wood, a propane cooking , lighting, heating set up, always water stored and food for a few days. We have low snow sometimes, power out for days, it happens .

    The PG&E infrastructure is aged, and it sometimes fails, or they shut the power off

    Power can be lost for many reasons, you should be prepared

      Well these morons actually believe it's a democratic conspiracy. Not outdated equipment, old school energy sources and piss poor negligence. Bleeding all of us dry with electric bills, taking advantage of customers until..entire towns and counties burn down. Now they take precautions. Just moving to another state won't change how all these monopolized agencies work, you cannot get away from that.
