Public En Banc Notice: Fire Safety and Utility Infrastructure

January 31, 2018
9:15am - 4 pm

 

California Public Utilities Commission -Auditorium
505 Van Ness Ave.( (Corner of Van Ness Avenue and McAllister Street)

San Francisco, CA 94102


also available via webcast: http://www.adminmonitor.com/ca/cpuc

 

The purpose of this En Banc is to examine the fire threat in California and what steps can be taken to mitigate fire hazards to utility infrastructure. California’s forest and rangeland vegetation grows in a Mediterranean climate with cool, moist winters and hot, dry summers. The combination of vegetation, climate, and topography creates a high risk fire environment. Every year, there are more than 5,400 wildland fires that burn an average of more than 156,000 acres each year. In many cases, fires impact utility infrastructure regulated by the CPUC. Utilities, especially electric and telecommunication services, are also critical for emergency response and the ability of first responders to communicate. However, in some instances utility infrastructure may also contribute to or be the cause of fire. As such, it is important for the CPUC to fully understand the intersect of fire safety and utility infrastructure. While a quorum of Commissioners and/or their staff may attend, no official action will be taken. If specialized accommodations are needed to attend, such as non-English language interpreters, please contact the CPUC’s Public Advisor’s Office at public.advisor@cpuc.ca.gov or toll free at 866-849-8390 at least five business days in advance of the event. For more information, including an agenda, please visit http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/2018FireEnBanc/.
