SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — As part of its commitment to the safety of its customers and the communities it serves, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is working year-round to make its system safer, to prevent wildfires and to improve Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events.

To share its wildfire prevention plans in 2021 and listen to customers' feedback, PG&E is hosting a series of weekly regional wildfire safety webinars. Each event will feature a brief presentation, after which participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to PG&E subject matter experts.

During the events, the PG&E team will discuss:

  • PG&E's wildfire prevention efforts
  • Resources to help customers and communities before, during and after PSPS events
  • Improvements to PG&E's safety technology and tools

The webinar events take place each Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and continue through the summer. The following webinars are planned through May:

  • May 6 – Nevada County
  • May 13 – Lassen, Plumas, Sierra and Tehama Counties
  • May 20 – Shasta County
  • May 26 – Humboldt, Mendocino, Trinity and Siskiyou Counties

While the webinar events will focus on regional work in the listed counties, all PG&E customers are welcome to join. Closed captioning will be available in English, Spanish and Chinese and a dial-in number is available for those who aren't able to join online.
