PG&E Wildfire Safety Vegetation Work

September 7, 2018 

This year’s historic wildfire season is on track to exceed the unprecedented 2017 wildfire season, and the threat is likely to get worse. Not only has California experienced the largest wildfire in state history, but as of the end of August, there have been over 5,800 wildfires which have burned more than 1.4 million acres this year. In response to the recent and dramatically increasing wildfire threat in our state, PG&E is taking immediate action to create even greater clearances between power lines and trees in extreme fire-threat areas across our service area, including a few neighborhoods in Pacifica. New state vegetation and fire safety standards require a minimum clearance of 4 feet around power lines in high fire-threat areas with clearances of 12 feet or more at the time of trim. PG&E will be reaching out to customers in advance of the work through automated phone calls, letters, emails, door knocks and doorhangers. More information on PG&E’s comprehensive Community Wildfire Safety Program is available at pge.com/wildfiresafety. Residents may also contact PG&E’s dedicated phone line at 1-877-295-4949 or email wildfiresafety@pge.com.
