Fire Season Update #1: Expectations for 2020

Fire Season 2020

All signs point to a severe fire season in 2020. CAL FIRE (the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection) recorded 4,465 fires covering close to 60,000 acres since January 1. It will get bigger, fast.

Our parched terrain is fuel waiting for just a spark. During the winter, Los Angeles recorded more rain than Northern California. According to the San Jose Mercury News, conditions have “left vegetation in Northern California drier now than it has been in July since the state’s historic five-year drought from 2012 to 2016.”

You need to prepare for fire risks and PG&E’s inevitable, potentially widespread, Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events.

Preparation

It’s all about preparation. As the great basketball coach John Wooden said, “Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.”

Additional PG&E planned power outage resources.
