Who should use this service?

Sign up if you want to receive notifications directly from PG&E about a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). For example, you might want to sign up for these ZIP Code alerts if:


  • Your landlord or property manager is the account holder for your electric service.
  • You care for someone who relies on electricity for medical needs, but you are not the PG&E account holder at their address.
  • You or your organization provide critical care or services dependent on electricity.
  • Your child(ren) attend a school outside of your community.
  • You would like to receive a notification about any Public Safety Power Shutoff in PG&E territory. (Select "all ZIP Codes" at time of enrollment.)

Sign up today if you would like to receive PSPS ZIP Code Alerts for any area where you don't have a PG&E account.


PLEASE NOTE: If you are a PG&E account holder and want to ensure PG&E has the correct contact information to provide you with shutoff alerts for your service address(es), sign in to your account or call 1-866-743-6589 to update your contact information, instead of using this service.

General Notification

How PSPS ZIP Code alerts work

Alerts are sent out according to ZIP Code. The ZIP Codes included in this program are within PG&E’s service territory.


PLEASE NOTE: It’s likely that only a portion of a ZIP Code will be impacted by a PSPS outage. If you receive an alert, use our address lookup tool to find out if your specific location may be impacted by the potential event. Be sure to look up your address again after each alert you receive, as the area(s) impacted are updated as weather conditions change. Also, if you sign up to receive alerts for all ZIP Codes, be aware that you may receive multiple alerts. There are hundreds of ZIP Codes in our territory and each time we add ZIP Codes to an event (due to weather updates), a new alert is sent. The “all” option is designed for statewide agencies and not recommended for the general public.


Weather permitting, we attempt to call or text you 48 hours, 24 hours and just before power is shut off for safety in all or part of the ZIP Code(s) you select.


The message will include a link to the PSPS event page, where you can:


  • Obtain more detailed information about where the outage is expected to occur.
  • Find the latest information about the possible outage.

The alert and/or the PSPS event page will also include a phone number you can call for more information.
