WHAT IS A PUBLIC SAFETY POWER SHUTOFF?
A Public Safety Power Shutoff, or PSPS, is a way of preventing wildfires by turning off potential causes of them (e.g. power lines) when weather indicates that dry, windy and hot conditions, perfect for making fire, will be in effect. When dangerous weather conditions have passed, energy company crews must visually inspect the lines to ensure that it is safe to restore power.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY RESIDENCE MIGHT BE AFFECTED?
Power companies across Oregon have created interactive maps folks can use to determine whether they might be affected by a PSPS. If you don’t see your power company listed below, please visit their website or contact their customer service for information.
