WEED, Calif. — Pacific Power is closely monitoring weather conditions in Weed, Calif., which is considered a high fire risk area, and may issue a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) today, September 17th beginning around 2 p.m. and extending to around 6 p.m.
The measure is a proactive effort to mitigate wildfire risk in the face of hazardous fire weather conditions including extremely low humidity, dry vegetation, elevated levels on key weather indexes and sustained winds and gusts.
“Taking this extraordinary measure is out of an abundance of caution,” said Erik Brookhouse, vice president of system, operations. “Forecasted high, sustained winds are stronger than what we saw on Sunday when we initiated the previous PSPS. We understand the inconvenience this can cause our customers and appreciate their patience during this important public safety event.”
Approximately 2,500 customers in Weed could be affected. Those customers have been notified of the watch through phone calls, email and text messages. Affected customers will continue to receive updates through ongoing communications. Customers can use the interactive map at www.pacificpower.net/psps to see if they are located in a PSPS area. Customers are encouraged to be prepared and have an outage kit ready.
If a PSPS is needed, customers will receive additional notifications at these times:
For all non-emergency questions about the PSPS, customers and the public should call Pacific Power at 1-888-221-7070.
Turning off power during a Public Safety Power Shutoff is done to prevent wind-blown or falling debris from making contact with energized power lines. Pacific Power crews will actively patrol and remove debris from lines and make repairs if needed. Once line inspections are complete and extreme weather conditions have subsided, Pacific Power will re-energize the lines.
