Whenever weather conditions such as today's high winds create the potential for elevated fire risk, various communities are placed under consideration for Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS).
When a PSPS activation occurs, Southern California Edison (SCE) will temporarily shut off power to the selected neighborhood(s) to prevent the electric system from becoming the source of an ignition.
Today's windstorms are a reminder that the time to prepare for potential power disruptions is before they occur.
You can see a list of cities that are under PSPS consideration, including those that are currently experiencing power disruptions, as well as getting information and preparation tips regarding PSPSs, by clicking on the banner above or by going to SCE's PSPS website.
You can also sign up to receive PSPS alerts via text, email or phone call from Southern California Edison (SCE) via their PSPS Alert website.
