Contra Costa County is preparing to respond to the impacts of a confirmed PG&E power shutoff event that will affect parts of the County. 

As of 1 p.m. on Oct. 9, PG&E's Public Safety Power Shutoff is expected to begin in Contra Costa County at about 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 9.

The PG&E power shutoff is expected to affect large areas of the County, including Bay Point, Canyon, El Sobrante, Kensington, Lafayette, Moraga, North Concord, Orinda, Pleasant Hill, Pinole, Pittsburg, Richmond, San Ramon and Walnut Creek. PG&E notice: Rossmoor and Danville will NOT be impacted by the PSPS. PG&E expects to start restoring power on Thursday, October 10 with complete restoration possibly taking several days.

Tips for Preparing for a Possible Power Outage:

  • Plan for your family and pet's needs
  • Treat intersections as four way stops if traffic lights are out.
  • Have enough water and non-perishable food. Conserve water. 
  • Take an inventory of the items you use that rely on electricity.
  •  People with electric security gates should lock them "open" while power is still on to ensure they can get in and out when it is not.  Also make sure you can get your vehicle out of the garage.
  •  Keep gas tanks full
  • Talk to your family and neighbors and share your plan
