Power Shutoff Information and Resources

Update: Thursday, October 31, 8:30 a.m. -- Public Safety Power Shutoff Ended in Walnut Creek

The winds have died down, and the threat of fires has decreased, ending PG&E's series of planned electrical outages.  While there remain many challenges in the North Bay, most of our area is getting back to normal.

Please note that the City's Open Space property, as well as all parks within the East Bay Regional Park District, remain closed until further notice.

 If you haven't already updated your contact information with PG&E, take a moment to do so in order to get advance warning.  To receive zip code alerts via phone call please dial 1-877-9000-PGE to enroll. Alerts will be delivered via automated call. To sign up for text alerts, text "ENROLL" to 97633.


We also ask that you register for notifications from the City, by registering through our WC Alerts.  That is as simple as texting WCALERT to 888-777.  As more details become available, we will send updates to those who have registered and post information on our social media channels. The City has established a non-emergency power outage hotline at 925-256-3555.
