KHSL – PG&E is devoting more resources to patrol – in an effort to prevent power outages.
Action News Now spoke with PG&E spokesman, Paul Moreno, he said the public safety power shutoffs (PSPS) will impact fewer people and be shorter in duration.
"PG&E has increased our fleet of helicopters from 35 to 65 this year plus two additional planes to help us do aerial patrols once the weather events have passed to hopefully inspect the lines and restore power quickly," Moreno said.
He added, not only will helicopters be upgraded, but more devices for weather stations have been installed and high definition cameras will monitor humidity, wind speeds, and temperature.
PG&E will continue giving out alerts to customers.
On Wednesday, PG&E will host a webinar program for Public Safety Power Shutoffs on community wildfire safety for Butte, Plumas, and Lassen counties. It's set to start at 5:30 and run until 6:30 p.m.
The interactive webinar will provide an opportunity for customers to hear about work in their community and ask questions. Those interested may access and register for the webinar, Click Here
