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.
