Public Safety Power Shutoff

What is a Public Safety Power Shutoff ?

During a threat of extreme weather or wildfire conditions, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) may turn off power for a period of time as a safety precaution.

UPDATE 15: October 29, 3:30 PM

The Wave will reopen this afternoon at 4:00 p.m. for normal programming.      

UPDATE 14: October 28, 6:15 PM

We've received maps from PG&E that show NO IMPACT to Dublin during this next PSPS.  However, this is subject to change, so be prepared by charging devices just in case.  Check your address at: https://psps.ss.pge.com/  The Wave continues to be closed due to the fact that the pool's heater and chemicals need to return to normal levels before it can reopen.

UPDATE 13: October 28, 5:10 PM

We've received maps from PG&E that show NO IMPACT to Dublin during this next PSPS.  However, this is subject to change, so be prepared by charging devices just in case.  Check your address at: https://psps.ss.pge.com/  

UPDATE 12: October 28, 4:45 PM - NEXT PSPS EVENT

Another Public Safety Power Shutoff is anticipated to be implemented by PG&E beginning Tuesday, October 29, at approximately 4:30 a.m., until midday on Wednesday, October 30.  This episode should be less intense, but in the same general areas as the last.  Check your address at: https://psps.ss.pge.com/

UPDATE 11: October 27, 8:00 PM

PG&E is currently monitoring another severe wind event for Tuesday and Wednesday that could affect dozens of counties throughout Northern and Central California.  The City of Dublin will follow this closely and provide updates as we receive them.  

UPDATE 10: October 27, 4:15 PM

Internet service has been restored at the Dublin Senior Center.  The Center will be open tonight until 9:00 p.m., and will reopen tomorrow at 7:00 a.m.    

UPDATE 8: October 27, 9:15 AM

Much of Dublin has lost power, but it does not appear to be a result of the planned power shutoff. The Dublin Senior Center has also lost power, so it cannot be used as a Community Resource Center. Check back for further information. 

UPDATE 7: October 27, 9:00 AM

The Wave has been affected by the power shutoff.  There will be no programming until further notice.

PG&E has NOT yet set up a Community Resource Center at the Dublin Library.  We will confirm whether or not they still indent to do so. In the meantime, the Dublin Senior Center will be open for those affected by the power shutoff to cool off, relax, and power up portable devices.:

Sunday, October 27, 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Monday, October 28, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

UPDATE 6: October 26, 9:05 PM

UPDATE 5: October 26, 2019, 6:00 PM

The City of Dublin has been informed that the Public Safety Power Shutoff will not begin until after 8:00 p.m. this evening.  

UPDATE 4: October 26, 2019, 4:15 PM

This weekend's planned Public Safety Power Shutoff will result in dozens of traffic light outages throughout Dublin and other communities.  Proceed with caution as some signals have batteries or generators, others don’t.  Please treat all intersections as a four-way stop sign.

Dublin Police Services will also have extra patrols on duty monitoring neighborhoods, shopping centers, and roadways.

UPDATE 3: October 26, 2019, 1:05 PM

The end time of the planned PG&E Public Safety Shutoff has been modified for the San Francisco Bay Area.  The shutoff is expected to end 14 hours earlier on Monday, October 28, at midnight (late Sunday).  However, additional time will be required for PG&E to get power turned on again.  

PG&E will also open an air-conditioned Community Resource Center tent in the back parking lot of the Dublin Library (200 Civic Plaza) on Sunday morning, October 27, featuring charging stations, free Wi-Fi, water, and snacks to serve those affected by the planned power shutoff.
