SCE Public Safety Power Shutoffs
A Message from Southern California Edison
Protecting Public Safety
SCEs number one concern remains public safety. As California prepares for the 2020 wildfire season, SCE crews continue to perform ground and aerial inspections and install hi-tech tools to help make communities more resilient and to protect communities from the threat of wildfires.
As in past years, when there is a high risk for a wildfire, SCE may declare a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) and temporarily shut off power to your neighborhood to prevent our electric system from becoming the source of an ignition. While SCE is taking every effort to reduce the number and length of PSPS, they will continue to use these outages as required to protect public safety.
Be Prepared for Public Safety Power Shutoffs
SCE wants to make sure their customers are informed and learn how to be prepared for PSPS outages. You can join them at one of their virtual community meetings to hear more about PSPS, wildfire safety efforts, customer care programs and resources, or attend a PowerTalk meeting to learn more about the different types of outages, including PSPS.
