Storm Preps - How To Stay Safe

Storm Preps - How To Stay Safe

As the first large storm of 2015 moves toward Northern and Central California packing heavy rain and gusty winds, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is hard at work preparing for the storm and reminds customers to have a preparedness plan ready as well for potential power outages and other storm related hazards.  The utility is closely tracking the weather system and mobilizing crews and materials into areas that will feel the brunt of the storm, so they can get to work and restore service to impacted customers more quickly.
