CHICO, Calif. - As part of its new public safety power shut off program, PG&E is adding more precautionary measures to reduce wildfires. If extreme fire conditions threaten an electricity system, your power could be turned off.

The county recommends keeping a supply kit with bottled water, non-perishable foods, extra batteries to charge up devices, and any important medication.

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
