Southern California Edison Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)


When there are extreme and potentially dangerous weather conditions, power companies may need to call a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event. During these events, they will proactively turn off power in high-fire-risk areas to reduce the threat of wildfires. The County of Riverside does not control PSPS. For more information on PSPS, please visit the Southern California Edison PSPS website or call (800) 611-1911.

Public Safety Power Shutoffs are not an action taken by the County of Riverside, and questions/concerns should be directed to your power utility provider.
