Preparedness resources are available in PG&E’s Safety Action Center:

Some residents may choose to seek a backup power solution for their residence. Information is available on the Generators & Backup Power page.
Remember, a Public Safety Power Shutdown (PSPS) is just one type of event where power may be lost for an extended period, and it is important that you and those around you are ready.
