PSPS Event 12/07/20: Outage Watch. Shutoffs likely

12.7.2020 PSPS Update Graphic

A Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) occurs in response to severe weather. Power is turned off to help prevent wildfire. PG&E will attempt to notify affected customers by phone, text and email.

In areas affected by a shutoff, PG&E opens daytime Community Resource Centers. Each center offers an ADA-accessible restroom and hand-washing station, basic medical equipment charging, device charging, Wi-Fi and other amenities.  For event updates, visit: https://pgealerts.alerts.pge.com/updates/ 

PSPS Event Timing for 12/07/2020

Estimated shutoff: 4:00 AM-6:00 AM
Estimated restoration: 12/08/2020 by 10:00 PM

Community Resource Centers Reflect COVID-19 Safety Protocols 

During PSPS events, PG&E opens temporary Community Resource Centers (CRCs) to support our customers. These CRCs are open to customers when power is out at their homes and provide ADA-accessible restrooms and hand-washing stations, medical-equipment charging, Wi-Fi, bottled water and non-perishable snacks. PG&E expects to begin opening CRCs on Monday morning if a PSPS is called.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all CRCs follow important health and safety protocols including:

  • Facial coverings and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet from those who are not part of the same household are required at all CRCs.
  • Temperature checks are administered before entering CRCs that are located indoors.
  • CRC staff are trained in COVID-19 precautions and regularly sanitize surfaces and use Plexiglass barriers at check-in.
  • All CRCs follow county and state requirements regarding COVID-19, including limits on the number of customers permitted indoors at any time.
