Supporting Fire-Prone Communities with Community Resource Centers

As the height of the traditional fire season approaches, we have established eight community resource centers in fire-prone communities, so residents have a place to go for information and get basic needs met during extended public safety power shutoffs.

These centers are the result of collaboration with local emergency response groups, including Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTS), Fire Safe Councils and the American Red Cross.

These locations are strategically located in the areas that are most often impacted by­­­­­ severe weather conditions. 

The Community Resource Centers will be open during extended power shutoffs lasting more than 24 hours. Hours will vary based on each shutoff event. These centers will provide up-to-date information, and basic needs like water, snacks and a place to charge cell phones. The sites will be equipped with air conditioning, Wi-Fi and ways to charge cell phones and other devices. 

The local CERTS will be staffing each of the locations to provide assistance to residents and provide wildfire safety information.
