From PG&E: "As we all work to fight coronavirus (COVID-19), we also know wildfire season is around the corner. PG&E is working to prevent wildfires and reduce the impact of Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events. Our essential work for the safety of customers and communities will continue as long as we can perform it safely for both employees and customers. The focus of these efforts, and the sole purpose of a PSPS event, is to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires during severe fire-risk weather. ... We invite you to join us for an interactive webinar with details about our plans for this year. You will hear about work in your community, have the opportunity to ask questions of PG&E subject matter experts and share your feedback."
