Prepare for Long PG&E Outages

It is quite probable that we will experience a 3-5 day power outage to prevent a fire in the future.

When conditions of low humidity, wind, and high temperatures are present, PG&E may issue a power outage red flag warning. It could impact a very large area of Marin or a few neighborhoods and everyone should know when it’s coming in order to get prepared. Be sure to update your PG&E record so you can receive calls and text alerts, or call 1-866-743-6589.

PG&E also offers tips for dealing with downed power lines.
