Emergency Preparedness

Diablo Canyon Power Plant is a safe, reliable and clean energy resource for PG&E's customers. Our well-trained and dedicated team of professionals focus every day on the continued safe operation of the facility. While the facility's robust design and built-in redundancies make an emergency event unlikely, it is important to PG&E that we provide this emergency planning information to our neighboring communities so they are prepared if ever needed. This emergency planning information was prepared in conjunction with San Luis Obispo County Office of Emergency Services.
