PG&E Holding PSPS Drill in Angels Camp, Using Helicopters

Angels Camp, CA...This week, PG&E will conduct a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) drills, using helicopters, in Angels Camp to practice response during a PSPS event. Power will not be interrupted during the drill held on Wednesday and Thursday, July 24 and 25.





Given the continued and growing threat of extreme weather and wildfires, and as an additional precautionary measure following the 2017 and 2018 wildfires, we are expanding and enhancing our Community Wildfire Safety Program to further reduce wildfire risks and help keep our customers and the communities we serve safe.

In response to the rapidly changing environmental conditions in our state, this includes expanding our Public Safety Power Shutoff program to include all electric lines that pass through high fire-threat areas – both distribution and transmission. In the event of extreme weather, we will proactively de-energize the lines, shutting off power, for the safety to those communities.

During an actual PSPS, crews will inspect every part of the de-energized lines from the sky and from the ground, to identify and repair damage, before restoring power.

We are practicing those inspections with these drills, to improve the time it takes to turn the power back on safely. We will fly a helicopter, as part of the drill, in the vicinity of Angles Camp and surrounding areas Wednesday and Thursday, June 26 and 27. Those in Angels Camp may see additional PG&E and contractor trucks.

We know how much our customers rely on electric service and that there are safety risks on both sides. We understand and appreciate that turning off the power affects first responders and the operation of critical facilities, communications systems and much more.


Event occurs on 07/24/2019 from All Day to .

    I just noticed something the second time the dates were mentioned the 26th and the 27th. Then the notice said nothing will be interuppted then later it states that there may be some interruptions. Either way I'm going to be prepared. Thank you
