Over the past decade, wildfires have emerged as a significant public health and safety concern for much of the Western United States. As our state’s largest utility, PSE is taking a comprehensive approach to mitigating the evolving risk of wildfires, working to ensure safety while maintaining the reliable delivery of energy to our communities.

Learn more about how PSE works year-round to prepare for and prevent wildfires, including Public Safety Power Shutoffs, and how you can prepare for wildfire season and other emergencies.
