Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today shared that as its crews and contractors remain in the field performing essential work to maintain gas and electric service, improve the safety of the system, further mitigate wildfire risks, and reduce Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) impacts, the company also is taking the steps necessary to keep communities informed about this vital wildfire prevention and safety work.
Starting this month, PG&E will host a series of county webinars to detail the progress of its numerous actions being executed as part of the Community Wildfire Safety Program and share how any needed PSPS events in 2020 are expected to be smaller in scope, shorter in duration and smarter for customers. With these webinars, even amid the ongoing COVID-19 health impacts, PG&E will keep customers and communities informed about its continuing important safety work to prevent and mitigate the serious risk of catastrophic wildfires while keeping customers and communities healthy and safe.
The schedule has been set up so that customers in adjoining counties can participate and hear details specific to their county. The webinars will feature a brief presentation and provide ample opportunity for participants to ask questions and provide feedback.
