Current Alameda County District Responses to Possible Public Safety Power Shutoffs & Air Quality Levels

Page updated 10/30/19, 4:35pm.

Each district/ROP is making determinations based on available information. The website of each district/ROP is listed below and is the most reliable source for current closure information.


Possible Public Safety Power Shutoffs

California's investor-owned electric utilities, including PG&E, may shut off electric power, referred to as "de-energization" or Public Safety Power Shut-offs (PSPS), to protect public safety. In the PSPS program, power may be cut on transmission and distribution lines in fire-prone areas when the risk of wildfire is deemed to be high. ACOE has created a PG&E Power Shutoff FAQ page for more information on why power shutoffs may be necessary, and what we can do to prepare. 

Visit PG&E's Public Safety Power Shutoff webpage for location-based shutoff information and to update your contact information with PG&E to receive timely notifications. 

The Alameda County Office of Emergency Management maintains AC Alert to provide notifications via phone calls, text messaging and e-mail updated based on location for Alameda County residents. 

District-issued information for the period of October 8-11, 2019 can be accessed here
