SUBJECT: During an Outage- Tips to Prepare for Potential PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoffs

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The City of Angels Camp reminds our community that it is important to be prepared and have a plan for PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff program (PSPS). Prepare for outages that may occur at any time and may last several days. Visit www.prepareforpowerdown.com for detailed information about preparing for power outages.

PG&E offers the following tips during a power outage:

• Unplug or turn off appliances, equipment and electronic to avoid damage caused by surges when power is restored
• Leave a single lamp on to alert you when the power returns. Then, turn your appliances on, one at a time.
• Typically, your refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours and a full freezer will keep its temperature for about 48 hours, as long as the refrigerator and freezer doors are kept closed. Consider using coolers with ice to keep food cold and safe.
• Be sure to use generators, camp stoves, or charcoal grills outdoors only. Do not use a gas stove for heat.
• Check on your neighbors.


PG&E’s outages will occur in response to localized weather conditions and may not be fully known until the day of the event. The decision to turn off the power and the speed at which it is restored is planned and managed solely by PG&E. Citizens need to prepare for being without power for several days. PG&E will attempt to notify customers of PSPS outages through calls, texts, and emails using the contact information that PG&E has on file. Be sure your contact information is up-to-date with PG&E at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.
