PG&E Wildfire Preparedness

Wildfire prevention and emergency response

  • Establishing a dedicated center to monitor wildfire risks in real time and coordinate prevention and response efforts

  • Expanding our network of PG&E weather stations to enhance weather forecasting and modeling


New and enhanced safety measures

  • In response to the growing risk of wildfire in our state, we are expanding and accelerating our vegetation and safety work. Learn about our enhanced vegetation and safety work.

  • We are partnering with customers in high fire-threat areas to create safe space between distribution lines and trees and brush that can act as fuel for wildfires. Learn about fire defense zones.

  • Refining and executing protocols to proactively turn off electric power where extreme fire danger conditions are occurring


Longer term electric system hardening

  • Investing in stronger, coated power lines

  • Replacing wood poles with non-wood material in some areas in coming years


Find out if you are in a high fire-threat area

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) worked with CAL FIRE and other utility and public-safety experts to develop a High Fire-Threat District Map Opens in new Window., adopted in January 2018. The map identifies areas across California that have the highest likelihood of a wildfire impacting people and property, and where additional action may be necessary to reduce wildfire risks.

  • Tier 3 areas are at extreme risk for wildfire

  • Tier 2 areas are at elevated risk for wildfire

  • Zone 1 areas are those with high numbers of dead and dying trees


Customers who are served by PG&E electric lines that run through areas that are at extreme risk for wildfire may have their power temporarily turned off for safety during extreme weather conditions. Find out if you’re in an area where power may be shut off for safety.
