During a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event, PG&E will open Community Resource Centers (CRCs) where community members can access resources during PSPS events, including:
- A safe location to meet their basic power needs, such as charging electronic devices and medical equipment.
- Up-to-date information about the PSPS event and timing of restoration.
- Water, snacks and other essential items to reduce hardships to our customers.
We work with local communities to improve the locations, availability, and services provided at our CRCs. PG&E has developed a long-term plan to set up indoor CRCs in permanent, ADA-accessible facilities, as well as outdoor sites in counties across our service territory that may be impacted by PSPS events.
