PSPS UPDATE: FOR THE WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 24th.
The city has been informed that high winds and heat will require a PSPS for a number of Marin communities. The PSPS will impact 19,600 customers but NONE in Tiburon and Belvedere. Areas that will be impacted are Mill Valley (5900 customers), Fairfax (4200 customers), San Anselmo (4000 customers), Sausalito and West Marin/Stinson. Impacted customers are being notified of the PSPS disruptions, and the PG&E website will be updated with the new information. Power will go out Sunday and will be restored by Tuesday night. This information will be updated as conditions change.
Current PSPS Information
As part of its Community Wildfire Safety Program, PG&E is implementing a Public Safety Power Shutoff program as a precautionary measure to help reduce the risk of wildfires. If gusty winds and dry conditions, combined with a heightened fire risk, threaten a portion of the electric system serving Belvedere, it may be necessary for PG&E to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety.
While Public Safety Power Shutoffs are more likely to occur in high fire-risk areas, a shutoff could impact other areas as well and are likely to last multiple days. That’s why it is important to prepare an emergency plan and kit in advance in the event your family is affected by a power shutoff--or any other emergency.
