SDG&E offers fire safety tips

San Diego’s history of dry weather causing hazardous conditions for possible wildfires, sometimes requiring Public Safety Power Shutoffs, prompted San Diego Gas & Electric to offer assistance and advice for customers.

SDG&E offers fire safety tips

This lovely dry weather is a contributing factor to our threat of wildfires.

San Diego Gas & Electric has again had to declare Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) for various reasons, primarily related to potential fire hazards. But they also offer some assistance for certain things during these times.

For example, if you have a medical device that requires power and fit other criteria, it may be possible to get a small generator from them. You can find information about this at sdge.com/our-commitment-wildfire-safety.

Some of the other items that might be obtained from them are transportation, welfare checkups and possibly food delivery if required. You can find more information on this at sdge.com/medicalbaseline.

The County of San Diego also has an access and functional needs assessment office to help with these items. Information is available at readysandiego.org/make-a-plan.

It is your responsibility to have a plan for you and your family in case of fire or any other emergency.

Put your plan together and make sure all of your family members are aware of the plan and know what to do and how to implement it.

Stay safe.
