Preparing for Public Safety Power Shutoffs

The City of Cloverdale encourages the community to prepare for possible Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) this summer and fall.  Residents should be aware these shutoffs could last anywhere from 2-5 days after the event. 

While no single factor decides when a shutoff will occur, conditions PG&E will consider include; red flag warnings, low humidity levels generally below 20%, sustained winds above 25 mph and gusts in excess of 45 mph.  Additionally, conditions of dry fuel and observations by PG&E crews on the ground can be determining factors for shutoffs.

Residents are encouraged to prepare now and have a safety plan in place to take care of their own needs during a PSPS shutoff and not wait until they are called. 

Things you should consider in preparation for a PSPS shutoff include; A supply of emergency drinking water, cash, full fuel tanks in your vehicles, non-perishable food sources and plans for charging medical equipment and cellular devices.
