How PG&E is preparing for wildfires


FRESNO, California – As wildfire season continues in California, PG&E is hosting public meetings for customers to talk about safety.

The utility company wants to reduce wildfire risks and keep customers and communities safe.

In a meeting in Fresno on Monday, representatives discussed replacing equipment, installing stronger power poles, and enhancing vegetation management around power lines.

Discussions also included the expansion of the public safety power shutoff program. PG&E describes it as a proactive measure to reduce the risk of a wildfire.

“It’s been done by other utilities for years,” explained PG&E’s Denny Boyles. “San Diego Gas & Electric has done it for a long time, and it was something that, after the wildfires in Northern California that were so devastating for all of us, we looked at it as another safety measure that needed to be put in place.”
