Utility Power Shutoffs
Many cities have been impacted by the recent and continued utility-initiated electrical power shutoffs that are leaving millions of California residents without power. The League has been working closely with Governor Gavin Newsom's Office and the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) to ensure the most up-to-date information on community resource centers and safety guidelines are reaching cities and residents impacted by the shutdowns.
This page will serve as a clearinghouse of resources for cities and towns to find out where to get the most up-to-date information on power shutoff locations, community resource centers, emergency preparedness best practices and potential financial assistance.
