Community Wildfire Safety Program

Nothing is more important to us than keeping our customers and communities safe. Extreme weather events driven by climate change are causing unprecedented and unanticipated wildfires. Years of drought, extreme heat and 129 million dead trees have created a “new normal” for our state, and we must continue to adapt to meet these challenges.

Our Community Wildfire Safety Program implements additional precautionary measures intended to reduce wildfire threats and strengthen our communities for the future.

Wildfire Prevention and Safety Efforts

In coordination with customers, community leaders and first responders, we are bolstering wildfire prevention and emergency response efforts:

Following last year’s wildfires, we are putting in place new and enhanced safety measures intended to reduce wildfire threats:

Over the longer term, we are doing more to harden our electric system and integrate new technologies to make a stronger and more resilient grid:

Why PG&E is Taking Action with the Community Wildfire Safety Program

Extreme weather is increasing the number of large wildfires and the length of the wildfire season in California.

PG&E recognizes that we can’t do this alone. We need to work together with civic and community leaders, first responders, state leaders, and other energy companies on solutions and new ways of thinking to stay ahead of California’s changing climate and ensure the ongoing delivery of safe and reliable energy.

Working Together with Our Customers

We want to work together to share information and help our customers and communities prepare for and stay safe during extreme weather events.

PG&E has a plan to deal with the growing threat of extreme weather and wildfires. We want all our customers to have plans, too.

Together, we can all take steps to prepare our homes, businesses and families to stay emergency-ready and safe during wildfire season.
