PSPS Webinar and Resources

CSAC Webinar. Earlier this week, the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) hosted a webinar on the Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). Representatives of CSAC were joined by officials from the Office of Emergency Services (OES) and discussed the appropriate use of the funding provided to counties. For those unable to attend the webinar, a recording can be viewed here.

State of Emergency. On Sunday, Governor Newsom declared a State of Emergency due to the fires and extreme weather conditions. Included in the proclamation is the reference to PSPS events impacting a multitude of residents throughout the state. A copy of the declaration can be found here.

Website. The Administration launched a website to house various PSPS event and fire response resources. The website, www.response.ca.gov, also includes helpful guidance around the sharing of health information.
