PG&E (PSPS) Program
PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Program
Severe weather, the threat of wildfires and other weather events may cause PG&E to turn off electricity for public safety.
The PSPS program provides individuals with information and assistance, Personal preparedness planning assistance and back up electricity support (batteries) before, during and after a disaster or PSPS electricity shut off event.
Disability Action Center has partnered with the California Foundation for Independent Living Centers (CFILC) and PG&E to support those persons with disabilities and older adults during Public Safety Power Shutoff events. By providing various services to those in need during these PSPS events, our hope is to help these vulnerable populations to remain safe and secure in their homes when possible during these events. Several programs are in place to assist those who depend on power for their durable medical equipment during these situations.
- Medical Baseline Enrollment
- Disaster Preparedness and Training
- Portable Battery Program
For more information please contact us.
If possible, reach out to the Disability Action Center in advance of a PSPS event if you would like to request services. While it is not a requirement, please keep in mind that the Disability Action Center does NOT operate as a 24/hour emergency response service and people experiencing a life-threatening emergency should dial 911 immediately.
