PG&E is working to restore electric service safely and as quickly as possible. As power is restored and communities are repopulated we want customers to know we are here to help.

Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office and Allied Agencies will have a heavy presence in the area to ensure the security and safety of resident and businesses. Due to the large amount of emergency equipment in the area, speed control will also be enforced.
There will still be smoke in the respective areas as firefighters continue firefighting operations. If at anytime you feel unsafe, please call 911.

SAFETY MESSAGE – The public is reminded to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings.  If you see electrical wires on the ground, stay clear and contact PG&E immediately. Trees and poles with deep charring, particularly if still smoking, should be considered hazardous. Please drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area. As you re-enter your property and evaluate damage, be aware that hazardous conditions may exist, particularly if a residence or out-building has burned. Hazards may include asbestos, heavy metals, by-products of plastic combustion and various other chemicals.
We encourage the public to remain prepared year-round for wildfires by visiting the website. The best show of support is having your home and property “fire-ready”.
