CALIFORNIA - Tracking fire danger in the North State includes everyone being prepared for any situation that might happen, including a PG&E power safety shutoff.

This week PG&E launched a new weather awareness website, that site gives up to a seven-day heads-up to expect a power shutoff.

The forecast encompasses nine geographic regions of PG&E's service areas and four levels of public safety power shut-off potential; Not Expected, Elevated, PSPS Watch, and PSPS Warning.

The website also gives users access to dozens of cameras in use by PG&E, the page is updated daily by a PG&E meteorologist or fire scientist.

PG&E monitors conditions across their system and evaluates whether to proactively turn off electric power lines, for public safety.
