Wildfire preparedness

How PSE prepares

We are taking a comprehensive approach to mitigating the evolving risk of wildfires, working to ensure safety while maintaining the reliable delivery of energy.

Many of our wildfire-related actions also help protect our system from other hazards, like high winds and winter storms. Other steps are unique to wildfires.

The following plan documents our current strategy for responding to wildfires. It incorporates best practices from risk management, operations, emergency management, communications, training and continuous improvement, with the ultimate priority being the safety of our personnel, our customers and the communities we serve.

What customers can do

While we are getting ready, customers can do the same with resources from Washington State’s Department of Natural Resources.
