PG&E Power Shutoff Update: The City of Oakland Issued This latest press release sent to Zennie62Media.
Oakland, CA – PG&E’s power shutoff schedule remains in place, with the shutoff in Oakland slated to begin at 8 pm. It may take up to two hours for the process to be completed.
PG&E anticipates that the weather conditions leading to the Public Safety Power Shutdown will subside by 12 noon tomorrow. However, they advise that the process to re-energize the lines could still take up to several days, depending on how long it takes for their crews to inspect the system, the level of damage caused by high winds, and the extent of repairs required. The decision to turn off power, and the speed at which it is restored, is planned and managed solely by PG&E.
PG&E has launched a new web page to allow the public to look up their address to determine whether they will be impacted by the power shutoff.
The City’s Emergency Operations Center remains in a 24-hour operational mode. The Oakland Fire Department remains on high alert given extremely hazardous fire conditions. In addition to their normal operations, firefighters have conducted roving fire patrols in the Oakland Hills. These resources augment the department’s normal hill company patrols that are out during high fire danger.
Today, Oakland firefighters made contact with residents with special medical needs. Additionally, the State of California Office of Emergency Services has pre-positioned fire suppression resources in Oakland and the region.
When the PG&E power shutoff occurs, the Oakland Police Department and Department of Transportation will deploy additional neighborhood patrols and provide traffic safety support at key intersections where signals are out.
Oakland Public Works will have tree crews on standby to respond to any downed trees or tree limbs in the public right-of-way or blocking streets.
Oakland Hills residents are encouraged to park their vehicles off-street if possible, to allow improved emergency vehicle access in the event of incidents requiring public safety response.
