Q: What are the best ways to prepare for the ongoing power shut-offs?

A:  First, sign up for updates from PG&E to make sure you know about planned shut-offs.  You can sign up here:  https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/your-account/account-management/manage-your-account/alerts-and-notifications/update-your-contact-information.page

Charge your phone, and keep a full tank of gas, whenever possible. Have flashlights and batteries handy, as well as a battery-powered or crank radio. For more preparation tips, visit: https://www.pge.com/en_US/safety/emergency-preparedness/natural-disaster/wildfires/outage-readiness.page
