When weather conditions create a high risk for a wildfire, Southern California Edison (SCE) may temporarily shut off power to your neighborhood to prevent the electric system from becoming the source of ignition. These outages are called Public Safety Power Shutoffs.
Sign up for customer alerts. SCE intends to notify affected customers approximately 48 hours in advance of a potential PSPS event and will attempt to notify customers again approximately 24 hours before power is shut off. Additional notifications will be made throughout the outage, when power has been shut off and when it has been restored. Notifications may occur via a combination of a phone call, text, sce.com, email, and social media.
Report downed power lines IMMEDIATELY by calling 9-1-1. Windy and stormy weather can cause power lines to fall, creating hazards by electrifying puddles, wet grass, and the surrounding area. Do not approach or touch anyone or anything in contact with a downed power line.
Report fallen trees to the Public Works Department directly through the E-Citizen portal.
